NEWTON, North Carolina — Authorities say a man who lived in the same apartment complex in Newton as a 31-year-old guidance counselor is now wanted in her death.
Police issued an arrest warrant for murder against Sharman Odom on Saturday.
Investigators say physical evidence led them to Odom. They did not specify what that evidence was.
Maggie Daniels was found dead in her apartment in June by neighbors after she didn't answer her phone.
Daniels was hired as a high school English teacher by Newton-Conover City Schools in 2006 and became a guidance counselor last year after completing her master's degree. She was the school system's teacher of the year in 2011.
