WV - Lynette Farley, 41, found in shallow grave, Mercer County, 29 Sept 2014
State Police arrested a Raleigh County man Friday in connection with the discovery of a woman’s body believed to be his wife.
Johnnie Ray Farley was arrested Friday for his alleged involvement in the death of his wife Lynette Denise Farley who was reported missing Monday, Sept. 29, according to West Virginia State Police Public Information Officer Lt. Michael Baylous.
During the State Police investigation into Mrs. Farley’s disappearance, information was developed that led them to believe her disappearance was the result of foul play and that her husband was somehow involved.
Friday, troopers from the Beckley and Princeton State Police detachments, assisted by members of the WVSP BCI, located the body of a female believed to be that of Lynnette Denise Farley buried in a shallow grave at a location off of Egeria Road, near the Mercer and Raleigh County border.
Johnnie Ray Farley was charged with first degree murder. He will be housed in the Southern Regional Jail pending his arraignment.

A Raleigh County man who was convicted last August of murdering his wife and burying her body on his Mercer County property was sentenced Friday to life in prison with no possibility of parole...
Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ash told the jury at the trial’s conclusion that Farley coldly plotted his wife’s murder, and even had a shotgun and tools for burying her ready in his pickup truck...
Ash said Farley killed Lynette Farley because she was planning to leave him.
