The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office special response team took Boyd into custody from a home in Concord on Sunday morning, Wilhelm said.
Police charged Jonathan Alexander Barnett, 18, of 6276 Old Salisbury Road, Kannapolis, with murder late Saturday night.
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.
