— An Apex man was arrested Wednesday in connection with the August death of a Durham woman who overdosed on heroin.

Kane Conrad Graves, 27, was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Eastern District Violent Fugitive Task Force and U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force and charged with second-degree murder and delivering heroin in connection with the death of Margaret Jones.

Jones, 24, was found dead inside her Ninth Street apartment on Aug. 13. An autopsy report showed she died of a heroin overdose.

The charges were filed earlier this week against Graves, following the release of the autopsy and a discussion with the Durham County District Attorney’s Office, authorities said.

Graves was being held at the Durham County Jail under $600,000 bond.
