Man charged with murder in Charlotte woman’s death

Police have arrested a man in the killing of Cynthia Marie Boza, whose body was found two weeks ago in woods off Poole Place NW in Concord.

Police charged Jacquise Candrell Moore, 23, with first-degree murder. Moore is in the Forsyth County Detention Center, where he was being held on other charges at the time of his arrest in Boza’s killing, Concord police said.

Moore has various addresses in Concord, Mount Pleasant and Charlotte, the most recent being a Mount Pleasant address, police said.

Police have not said how they believe Boza died.

Boza, 45, was reported missing by her family on Dec. 6 from her home on Jones Street, off Rozzelles Ferry Road in Charlotte.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police later obtained information putting Boza at a home in the 1100 block of Poole Place in Concord.
