Officers found Elande Felicia Brock dead at 913 McCaskill Drive on Monday, police said. Her boyfriend, Dallas Ray Fordham, told investigators that he and Brock had had an argument, but he wasn't arrested.
After an autopsy determined that Brock had been strangled, police arrested Fordham on a murder charge. He was being held without bond Thursday in the Lenoir County Jail.
