Investigation by the police department and Guilford County Sheriff's Office led officers to charge Jacques Silkett, 27, with first-degree murder and robbery.

Silkett was already being held at the Guilford County Detention Center on unrelated charges when he was served with the new charges. He remains in jail without bail, police said. 

Local media, business and community members came together to help solve the murder of a college student in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
