CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Two people charged after a Gastonia man was found dead on the side of a west Charlotte road will be in court Monday.
WSOC-TV reported that Avery Joe Lail Jr., 49, and his girlfriend, Delia Aldridge Rick, 56, both of Gastonia, were charged in the killing of 41-year-old Brian Dale Jones.
Avery Lail is accused of killing Brian Jones. Police also charged Lail’s girlfriend, Delia Rick, who they say washed the blood off of Lail’s clothes.
