UPDATE: Suspect, Victim Identified in Fayette County Murder Investigation

Posted: Updated:

An arrest has been made in a Fayette County murder investigation.

Deputies say Gavin Joe Williams, 25, of Scarbro, was arrested in Oak Hill Thursday.

He is being charged with the murder of Darrell Jay Shrewsbury, 63, of Scarbro.

Investigators found Shrewsbury's body Wednesday at his home on Wingrove Hill.

They say a neighbor called them stating the victim had not been seen in days.

A preliminary investigation revealed the probable cause of death was stab wounds, but Shrewsbury's body has been taken to the office of the state medical examiner in Charleston for an autopsy.

There's no word on a motive for the murder at this time.

Williams is being held in the Southern Regional Jail awaiting arraignment.
