Cox was arrested Tuesday in Bluefield, West Virginia, the sheriff’s office said. Cox was transported back to Hoke County on Thursday and taken in front of the magistrate where he was served with his warrants.
He has been charged with first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Cox is being held in Hoke County under no bond due the murder charge, the sheriff’s office said.
