A Cherokee County man is behind bars on a murder charge in the death of another man.
John Anthony Hill, 43, was charged in the Sunday slaying of Paul George Pfleiderer
Deputies went to Hill’s home in the Peachtree community off N.C. 141 shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday in response to a 911 call reporting a home invasion in progress at the residence.
Hill met officers as they arrived, and officers found Pfleiderer, also of Peachtree, dead inside Hill’s home.
After processing the scene with assistance from the SBI, investigators determined the death was “consistent with homicide,”
Hill is being held at the Cherokee County Detention Center under a $500,000 secured bond. His first court appearance in Cherokee County District Court is scheduled for July 8.
