    NC - Jakir Sheikh, 58, manager, found strangled at Raeford Inn, 19 Jan 2015

    The Hoke County Sheriff's Office has issued warrants charging a couple with the murder of a man found strangled inside a Raeford motel room on Monday. Jakir Mohammad Sheikh, 58, was found dead inside a motel room at Raeford Inn by his brother, who owns the motel. The Hoke County Sheriff Office said Sheikh, who was the manager of the Raeford Inn, was reported missing on Friday.

    Deputies said Sheikh was found strangled inside a room rented to 21-year-old Tyler Mark Pierce and his girlfriend Samantha Shilts, 21, who were not in the room when officers arrived to investigate.

    A man with an outstanding murder warrant issued from North Carolina was arrested in Reno after an off-duty U.S. Marshals deputy spotted him driving along Interstate 80 near Truckee on Monday evening. Mark Pierce, 21, was awaiting extradition to North Carolina after he was taken into custody during a traffic stop for an arrest warrant issued last week, authorities said in a news release.
