— A woman accused of killing a traveling salesman from Warren County could face the death penalty if convicted.

Theresa Jones is charged with murder in the death of Donald Wimbrow in Norlina last March.

Wimbrow's body was found stuffed under the mobile home where Jones lived.

The district attorney's office says Jones hit Wimbrow over the head with a rock, then strangled him.
