ROCKINGHAM, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Richmond County say an Ellerbe man is charged with murder after the body of a 4-year-old girl was found inside her home.

Sheriff James Clemmons Jr., said 39-year-old Julius Juan Lilly is jailed without bond. Clemmons said the murder occurred Friday morning at a home which is identified as Lilly's residence.

The sheriff's office said deputies responded to a 911 call at a home shortly before 8 a.m. and found the girl's body.

The child's identity hasn't been released and Clemmons said her body will be sent to the medical examiner's office in Chapel Hill to determine the cause of death.

It wasn't immediately known whether Lilly has an attorney.
