Apex Man Arrested on Murder Charge
An Apex man was arrested today and charged with second-degree murder and delivering heroin in connection with the August death of a Durham woman.
Officers with the U.S. Marshals Eastern District Violent Fugitive Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force arrested the man – 27-year-old Kane Conrad Graves – at the Wake County Courthouse. He was taken to Durham and placed in the Durham County Jail under a $600,000 bond.
He is charged with the death of Margaret Jones, 24, of Durham. Jones was found dead in her apartment on Ninth Street on August 13. She apparently died from an overdose of heroin, according to an autopsy report.
Investigators took out indictments against Graves this week after receiving the final findings from the medical examiner’s office and following discussions with the Durham County District Attorney’s Office.
