After deputies got the home on Bill Town Road, they found the body of Gary Lee West, Jr. in his yard with obvious signs of trauma to the upper body.

Norris was charged with one count of accessory after the fact – murder and one felony county of possession of heroin.  She's in the Sampson County Detention Center on a $775,000 bond.

Deputies say the investigation is continuing.
