The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office special response team took Boyd into custody from a home in Concord on Sunday morning, Wilhelm said.

Dr. James David Boyd, 47, was found in his bed early Thursday morning, bound and strangled at his home at 9 Pine Tree Road near the Salisbury Country Club.
On Thursday night, police charged Candice Jo Drye, 23, of Mocksville, with murder.
