SCARBRO (WVVA) - A Scarbro man has been arrested and charged with the murder of an elderly man who police say was stabbed multiple times.

Gavin Joe Williams, 25, of Scarbro was arrested at 12:49 a.m. Thursday and charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of 63-year-old Darrell Jay Shrewsbury.

Shrewsbury's body was discovered on Thursday afternoon by officers conducting a welfare check at his residence on Wingrove Hill in Scarbro. Shrewsbury had not been seen for several days.

Officers found the victim's body outside, near the rear door of the mobile home. Police said the body had been covered up in apparent attempt to conceal it.

The preliminary investigation indicates the victim died of multiple stab wounds. The body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine the official cause of death.

Williams was arraigned by video Thursday morning and remanded to Southern Regional Jail where he is being held without bond.

Police say there is no speculation on motive at this time. The case remains under investigation by the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's deputies were assisted at the scene by troopers from the Oak Hill detachment of the West Virginia State Police.
