SPENCER, N.C. (AP) - A man has been charged with beating his ex-wife to death in Spencer.

Authorities say 47-year-old Rodney Roberto Wallace was arrested Thursday morning in Wrightsville Beach and charged with first-degree murder and violating his probation.

Spencer police say the body of Toney Ann Johnson was found between two homes at around 9 a.m. Wednesday.

The couple divorced in January.

Wallace was being held Saturday in the Rowan County jail. It wasn’t known if he had an attorney.
