TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- The former head of the Hells Angels chapter in Tucson is facing a murder charge after authorities found a body buried on his property.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say 54-year-old William Gary Potter was booked Tuesday into the county jail on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of Randall Scott Pfeil.

Pfeil's body was found in a shallow grave at a home south of Three Points where deputies had gone to Monday afternoon as part of a missing persons investigation.

The 50-year-old Pfeil was reported missing Friday. Authorities say an autopsy is scheduled on Pfeil's body to determine the cause of death. The Hells Angels are an international motorcycle club that has frequently been tied to criminal activity.
