MOSCOW (AP) - Authorities say the body of a Russian local lawmaker has been found cemented in a barrel. Another politician has been accused of ordering the killing over an $80 million debt.

Mikhail Pakhomov, 37, went missing last week. He was a member of the local legislature in Lipetsk, a city some 350 kilometers (some 215 miles) south of Moscow, and was last seen when three unidentified men pushed him into a car and drove away.

Russia's Investigative Committee says several suspects were detained in the case, and that authorities found Pakhomov's badly beaten body in a barrel of cement in a garage.

The committee says Yevgeny Kharitonov, a former provincial official, is being held on suspicion of ordering the killing of Pakhomov, allegedly over the $80 million debt.
