GRAHAM, N.C. — Deputies say a High Point woman is the sixth suspect to be arrested in connection with an Alamance County murder case.

According to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, 26-year-old Sacorya Kateka Spinks was arrested Thursday.

Spinks is charged with accessory after the fact of murder in relation to the death of 47-year-old Kenneth Joel Clapp, whose body was found near an abandoned structure off Louis Graham Road on the morning of Friday, March 29.

Deputies say it took investigators several days to identify the victim because the body had “experienced extensive trauma.” They believe Clapp was killed at another location before his body was taken to where it was found.

Five others have been arrested in the case. Cameron Romero Graves and Marteese Rasheed Martin are both charged with first-degree murder. Solomon Gerard Tate, Phillip Jerome Tate and Ebony Nyiesha Franklin are charged with accessory after the fact of murder.

Deputies say Spinks is Solomon Tate’s girlfriend, Franklin is Graves’ girlfriend, and Phillip Tate is Solomon Tate’s father.

Spinks is being held in the Alamance County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond. Her mugshot was not provided. Ebony Franklin’s mugshot was not provided, either.
