LENIOR, N.C. (AP) -- A Morganton man has been arrested in the fatal assault of another man in Lenoir last month. 

Twenty-four-year-old Cory Travis Vanover is charged with first-degree murder.  

The body of 28-year-old Wade Michael Taylor Jr. was found behind a shopping center on Jan. 24. 

Investigators say Taylor had been beaten. 

Vanover was expected to be in court for a first appearance on Thursday. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
