Murdered mother was strangled

ONSLOW COUNTY Authorities say 20-year-old Soyer Lewis Moll of Hubert led investigators to his wife Virginia's shallow grave Tuesday evening. The body was located behind the couples' Sanbridge Road home under a fallen tree.

Investigators say a domestic dispute between Moll and his 21-year-old wife led to her death.

Virginia's sister, who lives out of town, reported the mother of one missing on November 1. Authorities say she was last seen on October 28.

According to the Jacksonville Daily News, the Molls had been married just over a year. The couple's daughter turned one on Tuesday.

Soyer Moll is being held without bond.
