BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia authorities say three people are facing charges in an abandoned body case.

The Beckley Register-Herald (https://bit.ly/2qBSRKQ ) reports Ashley Treadway and Michael Justice II, both of Crab Orchard, were charged Thursday with concealing and transporting a deceased body and conspiracy. Rayburn Buchanan Jr. turned himself in Friday and faces the same charges.

Earlier this month, the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office reported a deceased body was transported and abandoned along a road.

The body was identified as Jason McNeely of Logan County.

The sheriff’s office says McNeely died from a possible overdose at a Crab Orchard residence. Buchanan and Treadway are accused of concealing his body in the residence.

Authorities say Buchanan and Treadway, who were assisted by Justice, later transported McNeely’s body to the road where it was abandoned.
