Arrest Made In Duplin County Woman's Murder

Four months after a woman was found dead, investigators have made an arrest in the case.

Anthony Smith of Pink Hill is under arrest for the October 19th murder, kidnapping and first degree sexual offense of Ashley Ann Mercer.

Duplin County deputies found the 19-year-old woman's body in her car on Church Road in Pink Hill.

A written report from the medical examiner was just recently received and after consulting with investigators, the district attorney's office decided to file charges.

Smith is scheduled for a first court appearance Monday in Kenansville.
