BAY, Ark. (AP) - A Bay man arrested in connection with the abduction and murder of a 90-year-old woman is due to appear in district court Monday.

Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd tells the Jonesboro Sun (https://bit.ly/1Og3cih ) that Richard Jordan Tarver could potentially face charges of capital murder, burglary and kidnapping.

Tarver was arrested Friday in connection with the death of Lavinda Counce, who went missing July 3. She was missing nine days before her body was found in a cornfield with a gunshot wound to the head.

Tarver is being held at the Craighead County Detention Center. There was no information in jail records whether Tarver had an attorney.
