DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A suspect has been identified and is wanted in connection with the murder of a Davidson County woman.

A warrant for arrest on the charge of murder has been issued for 28-year-old Daryl Kristopher Keeling, of Greensboro, according to Davidson County Sheriff David Grice.

Deputies responded to a welfare check at 303 Christine Lane on Wednesday afternoon and found 29-year-old Allison Middaugh, of the residence, deceased inside.

Grice said preliminary reports indicate Middaugh died of strangulation.

Detectives believe Keeling has left Davidson County area, Grice said.
