The ex-boyfriend of a Fort Worth woman who disappeared in October has been indicted on a charge of aggravated kidnapping and is accused of kidnapping her with the intent of killing her.
The three-count indictment also alleges that Christopher Revill, 33, attempted to “alter or destroy or conceal” Typhenie Johnson’s body after she died.
Revill faces a charge of aggravated kidnapping with intent to terrorize, a first-degree felony that is punishable by five to 99 years or life in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Johnson, 25, was last seen Oct. 10 at an apartment complex in far east Fort Worth, near Texas 360.

According to an affidavit, Johnson had been talking to Revill, with whom she had broken up two months earlier, outside her apartment. During their talk, Johnson reiterated to Revill “that it was over,” the affidavit said.
Concerned for Johnson, her brother and her current boyfriend had been keeping an eye on the talking couple, but after about 20 minutes, Revill and Johnson moved their conversation to the side of the building.
About 20 minutes later, Revill came into Johnson’s apartment and collected some items. When asked by Johnson’s brother where his sister had gone, Revill told him she “left with someone who was going to fix her vehicle” and then departed himself.
When Johnson’s brother went downstairs to look for her, he noticed that Revill’s car was backed into an area of grass and dirt. He saw Revill close the trunk before getting inside the car and driving away.
Near where Revill’s car had been parked, the brother found his sister’s sock and cellphone. Her car keys were later found in the parking lot, police said.
Johnson’s brother called Fort Worth police about 15 minutes later.
A responding officer called Revill and told him he needed to return to the complex.
Revill arrived about 25 minutes later, sweating despite the cool temperature, the affidavit states.
Revill told investigators he had not harmed Johnson and had not parked in the grass where Johnson’s belongings were found.
The affidavit states, however, that shoe and tire impressions left in the grass and dirt area where Johnson’s belongings were found appeared to match Revill’s tires and shoes.
A search of the back yard at his parents’ home, where he lived, also uncovered a stretched-out bra, a woman’s shirt, a broken watch and a man’s tank top, according to the affidavit.
Revill remains in the Tarrant County Jail with his bail set at $50,000. His next court date is scheduled for Jan. 3.
Second missing ex-girlfriend
He had another ex-girlfriend vanish in 2006, when Taalibah Islam went missing.
Revill told police that he last saw Islam five days earlier when she and their child visited him, according to a police report. Islam left the residence, he said, leaving the baby behind and getting into a vehicle with an unknown person and left.
He told police that he believed she would come back for the baby but that no one heard from her since.
