Authorities in Richmond County say they have charged a man with murder, in connection with the death of a 4-year-old girl.
The sheriffs office says 39-year-old Julius Lilly, of Ellerbe, is being held without bond in jail. He was charged after deputies found the girl dead inside her home Friday morning.
Authorities have not released the name of the victim or said where it happened. But they say deputies responded to a 911 call at a home shortly before 8 a.m. and found the girls body.
