Man Arrested After Burning Body Found

It was a gruesome scene for firefighters called to put out a woods fire. It turned out to be the body of a young woman on fire. The body was found burning in a grove, several hundred yards off of Lonesome Pine road in Nash County, just north of Salem. Firefighters carefully put out the fire to preserve any evidence, and that careful work paid off. Only hours later, Nash County Sheriff's deputies arrested 39-year-old Brizuela Jose DeJesus Madrid of Louisiana and charged him with the murder of a woman authorities say may be his girlfriend. Her identity hasn't been released yet.
