MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky man has been arrested and charged with killing a man whose body was found inside a home last fall.

Kentucky State Police said 26-year-old Danny W. Stewart of Manchester was charged Wednesday with murder and theft under $500 and lodged in the Clay County Detention Center. He was being held without bond.

Stewart is accused of killing 59-year-old Carl House of Manchester. His body was found inside a residence near the Laurel County line last Oct. 2, and police said at the time he was the victim of an apparent gunshot wound.

Jail records online did not indicate whether Stewart is represented by a lawyer.
