The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office has charged a suspect with murder in the slaying of a man whose badly decomposed body was found in a wooded area Saturday.

A news release from the agency says 24-year-old David Adam Pate killed 33-year-old Rickey W. James on or about October 17th.  The release says the two had gone into a wooded area behind Mullis Circle.

The agency says after killing James, Pate concealed his body under a pile of brush.

The sheriff’s office says Pate had been in the Lancaster County Detention Center since being arrested for disorderly conduct November 11th.
