    Two years, no arrest

    Just one thing angered Betty Spencer more than her sister’s unsolved murder. That was her brother-in-law taking another bride less than a year after the discovery of JoAnne Spencer’s bullet-riddled body.
    Sunday was exactly two years since the woman who doubled as younger sister and next-door-neighbor to Betty Spencer disappeared from her Crimora home. Few clues, a single suspect and no arrests have filled the 24 months in between.

    Many in the Spencer family had their suspicions before the 55-year-old woman’s partially decomposed body ever turned up Jan. 23, 2004, in West Virginia. Some began pointing fingers at husband of nearly 40 years Charles Melvin Spencer - he goes by Melvin - even before investigators listed him in a search warrant as a suspect.

    “I’d like to kill him, but I know that wouldn’t solve nothing,” Betty Spencer told The News Virginian.

    With the murder of JoAnne, the (probable) murder of Margaret Gail-Stamper, and the attempted murder of another girlfriend, Charles Spencer is one very dangerous man!
