CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man was arrested Wednesday night in connection with the death of an elderly man late last week in Kanawha City, Charleston Police say.
Anthony Caldwell, 39, of Charleston, is charged with first-degree murder.
The body of George Molle Jr., 90, was found late Friday night at his home in the 4900 block of MacCorkle Avenue.
Police say Caldwell was a lawn service provider for Molle. Officers say Molle was found face up with a "large amount of blood coming from his mouth."
They say his neck was punctured and he appeared to have been strangled.
A cigar box with money inside was taken from the house, in addition to a small tin jar with change.
Police say surveillance video from a nearby bank captured the entrance to Molle's house. That's what led them to Caldwell as a suspect.
Officers actually tracked his path through Kanawha City by viewing surveillance video from other businesses.
Police say Caldwell was carrying a black trash bag out of the house.
They later found that trash bag in a dumpster behind the Drug Emporium in Kanawha City. It had a hammer and work gloves with blood inside.
If convicted, Caldwell faces up to life in prison.
