WILLIAMSTON, N.C. — A Williamston man is accused of living with his dead girlfriend for several days instead of reporting her death.

WNCT reported that Randall Edward Johnson, 44, was arrested after Martin County deputies found the body of Carla Jean Baggett at a home on Ballard Road on Saturday.

Authorities said Baggett was last seen alive Wednesday night, and her body had started to decompose in the suspect’s bedroom.

Officials said Johnson was Baggett’s live-in boyfriend. Deputies said they have not found any evidence of foul play, but the body is undergoing an autopsy. The age of the deceased was not provided.

Authorities said Johnson was charged with felony concealing a death from law enforcement and placed in jail under a $100,000 secured bond.
