Spotsylvania County Sheriff's deputies have made an arrest in the investigation of a body found at Attkisson Truck and Equipment Sales in December.

George Elwood Crenshaw, 45, of Caroline County, has been indicted on charges of first degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. 

The body of Attkisson employee Mickey Wane Jones, 61, was discovered when his coworkers arrived at work Dec. 27.

"There were very few leads and this was truly a difficult case to solve," said Spotsylvania County Sheriff Roger Harris on Tuesday.

The investigation was aided Jan. 25, when Crenshaw was arrested on an unrelated commercial break-in.

Investigators discovered Crenshaw had pawned a gun similar to the weapon used in the killing of Jones in December. Police say the gun has since been matched to the shooting.
