Man arrested after body found in Jackson County

An autopsy has been performed on a woman whose body was found last Friday in someone’s backyard in St. Martin.

The unknown woman has been missing since October of last year and local authorities began working with an FBI task force just last week.

The suspect, Phillip York, made his initial court appearance this afternoon.

Investigators say he’s a convicted felon and was found with a firearm. It’s unclear if that weapon played a role in the woman’s death.

His bond has been set at $350,000.
