GREENSBORO, N.C. – Police have charged a man with murder after a body was found in a wooded area near a Greensboro apartment complex.

Lemuel Lee Harris Jr., 24, of Greensboro, faces charges in connection to the death of 25-year-old William McKinley Spencer III of Greensboro.

Greensboro police said they found Spencer’s body after responding to Georgetown Manor apartments at 3818 Overland Heights at about 4:18 a.m. Saturday.
