ELLISTON, Va. (AP) - A North Carolina woman has been charged with murder after a body was discovered in a Virginia home where she once lived.

Media outlets report 52-year-old Janice B. Widenor was indicted in Montgomery County on a first-degree murder charge earlier this month in the death of 70-year-old James H. Austin.

Austin’s body was found inside a home in Elliston where Widenor once lived.

Widenor had already been charged with concealing a body in concrete. Authorities in Greensboro, N.C., arrested Widenor and she was extradited to Montgomery County.

Montgomery County sheriff’s Capt. Brian Wright has said he believed Austin was an acquaintance of Widenor.
