Police have arrested a suspect in the death of a Woodbridge man more than two months ago, according to Prince William County Police.

James Willie Bethea, 47, of the 3400 block of Caledonia Circle, has been charged with murder. Arrested Thursday, Bethea is held without bond and will appear in court March 25.

The body of Charlie Duncan Adkins, 78, was discovered in a home on the 3400 block of Caledonia Circle on Nov. 12.
