WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve arrested a Richmond County man in connection with the death and dismemberment of a Winston-Salem man.

News outlets report 31-year-old Adrion Demare Whorley, of Rockingham, was arrested Thursday and charged with murder and concealing the death of 75-year-old John Douglas Agnew.

Police say they found Agnew’s body after being called to make a welfare check at his townhome Monday.

Winston-Salem police Lt. Mike Cardwell says Whorley and Agnew were acquaintances, but declined to comment further on the men’s relationship.

It’s unclear if Whorley has an attorney.
