Murphy, NC Man Arrested for Murder
John Anthony Hill, 43, has been charged with murder in the death of Paul George Pfliederer, according to Cherokee County, NC Sheriff Keith Lovin.
About 7 pm Sunday night dispatchers got a call that a home invasion was underway at a home in the Peachtree community. Deputies were met at the front door by Hill, who pointed them inside to Pfleiderer who was already dead.
Investigators called for assistance from the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation. The sheriff said it was determined to be homicide, but he did not say how Pfleiderer was killed.
Hill was arrested and is being held on a $500,000 bond. He is expected to appear in Cherokee County District Court on July 8.
