Cops in Brooklyn have made an arrest in the case of a murdered teenage girl.

The naked and charred body of 14-year-old Shanesha Forbes was found on Gerritsen Beach in January.

She had been smothered, and then stuffed into a suitcase that was set on fire.

Thursday, police arrested 20-year-old Christian Ferdinand in connection with the case.

Cops say he killed her because he thought she was pregnant and wouldn’t get an abortion.

According to the medical examiner, the victim was not pregnant when she was killed.
