HIGH POINT — Authorities have arrested and charged a man with first-degree murder in the death of a 26-year-old High Point woman, police said in a news release Thursday morning.
Officers responded just before 11 p.m. Wednesday to a residence in the 700 block of Gaines Avenue and found Linda Jean Huntley dead inside, High Point police said in the release. After officers shared suspect and a vehicle description with other law enforcement agencies, Thomasville Police Department soon found the vehicle and suspect in their jurisdiction.
