The neighbor called 911, around 11:00 a.m., after finding 34-year-old Alison Deborah Jurich covered in blood inside a house located on Rockwood Drive, just off Duraleigh Road.
Robert John Daidone, 22, of 204 Great Ridge Court in Morrisville is now charged with first-degree murder and two counts of breaking and entering. He appeared in court Tuesday and is facing additional charges stemming from Chatham County.
Police have not said how Jurich died.
Police were only allowing residents who live on Rockwood Drive to enter the neighborhood Saturday afternoon. The investigation had many nearby residents like Tom Counavelis worried.
"It's a little unnerving to see police cars there, not knowing what's going on and when you ask, [to] find out that there's a dead body in the house-it's pretty unnerving because this is a real quiet neighborhood in through here," Counavelis said.
Jurich was a mother of two teenage boys.
Records show Daidone has previous convictions for drug possession and credit card fraud.
