Arrest Made in Murder of Charlotte Business Man

York Sheriff's Deputies charged a man for the murder of  Charlotte businessman Jesse Campbell.

Kevin Mauricio Arita Dejesus, 21, was arrested Thursday. Campbell was the owner of Campbell's Greenhouse and Nursey in Charlotte's South End neighborhood. He was found dead in his Clover home on January 6, 2016.

“[Dejesus] was in possession of a Honduran passport, and the York County Sheriff’s Office will work to determine his legal immigration status in the United States,” said Sheriff Bruce Bryant.

Investigators originally thought Campbell's murder was not a random crime, but since the arrest, deputies have not released a motive, or said if they think these two knew each other.
