Moore County Murder Suspect Back In North Carolina

Posted February 3, 2006

— The suspect in a murder case in Moore County is back in North Carolina.

Investigators arrested Johnny Maness in a town near Beaumont, Texas earlier in the week. They think Maness killed 80-year-old Ruthie Morgan last month.

Detectives named Maness as a suspect based on clues in Morgan's truck, which turned up in South Carolina.

Maness arrived at the Moore County Jail at midnight.
