Carroll County man charged with murder after standoff

A man has been arrested in connection with a homicide in Carroll County this week.  

On Monday, authorities were called to the 100 block of Rose Street in the San Marco subdivision after reports of a body found in a brush pile. 

Responding deputies found the body of a male wrapped in a blanket behind a home. 

Investigators said the owner of the home, 41-year-old Aaron Ashley, went to a home on Waddell Street in Bremen and when detectives tried to speak to him he barricaded himself inside the residence. A standoff followed. 

Ashley was eventually taken into custody. He's facing several charges, including felony murder, aggravated assault, concealment of a death and several others. 

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office hasn't revealed the victim's identity or cause of death.
