A man was indicted in Forsyth County on charges of having sex with a woman after she died, authorities said. Parker Clayton Ward of Forsyth County could face one to 10 years in prison after being charged with necrophilia.
Forsyth County sheriff's deputies said the woman's boyfriend became concerned when he couldn't contact her. The boyfriend then called Ward and asked him to check on her, authorities said.
Ward, 54, notified authorities that the woman had died. But investigators became suspicious from the body's position and found the victim's clothes disturbed by someone.
Deputies also found empty bottles of pills next to the victim.
When confronted by authorities, Ward admitted he had attempted sex, but denied knowing the woman was dead.
