Man arrested in W.Va. in Kentucky death case

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - An Ashland man has been charged in connection with a murder case involving a man whose remains were found after he had been missing last month.

Kentucky State Police said Thursday that 54-year-old James E. Mcwain was arrested Monday in Charleston, W.Va., and is awaiting extradition. He is charged in Kentucky with third-degree arson and tampering with physical evidence.

Police believe Mcwain was involved in trying to dispose of evidence related to the death of 29-year-old Christopher M. Frazier of Westwood, Ky.

Frazier was reported missing April 8. His remains were found 11 days later.

Police said earlier that 36-year-old Carlton Gallman of Ashland was charged with murder and that Gallman and 35-year-old Aaron W. Gallion of Ashland were charged with tampering with evidence.
