Local Man Charged with Murder in Georgia
MAYSVILLE, Ky. (WKRC) -- A local man who was jailed in connection with the disappearance of a man in Georgia now faces a murder charge.
Timothy Michael Fite was extradited from Mason County to Carroll County, Georgia earlier this month after he was arrested for stealing the missing man's pickup truck. Investigators say after Fite was taken to Georgia they learned the location of James Van Chatman's remains.
Officials in Georgia found Chatman's body in a river near his home. He had been missing since September.
An autopsy is being conducted to determine how Chatman died, but officials believe Fite and a woman killed him and dumped his body in the river.
