A murder in Washington state has made headlines because the death was eerily similar to a scene in the AMC television series "Breaking Bad."

Hayley Guenthner of KREM news in Washington reports that 33-year-old Regan Jolley was found dead soaking in a plastic tub full of acid in Nine Mile Falls, Wash., on June 3. She was also nude.

Jolley's boyfriend, Jason Hart, was arrested on a murder charge the following day. According to KREM, they had only been dating for six weeks.

Hart is accused of choking Jolley before allegedly using the acid to try to dispose of her body.
