ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina couple has been arrested in Virginia and charged with the death of a man missing since last month.
Randolph County sheriff's deputies have charged 21-year-old Jessica Dawson Summey and 24-year-old Shaun Michael Lundy of Asheboro with murder.
The couple was arrested in Tazewell, Va., on Thursday morning.
Police say Summey is the former girlfriend of 31-year-old John Russell Morris of Durham.
Morris was reported missing May 29. He was last seen by friends on May 25.
Investigators think Morris went to the couple's home and was confronted by Summey and Lundy, her current boyfriend.
Police found Morris' burned vehicle and human remains at the home. Tests are being conducted to confirm the remains are those of Morris.
