JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -- The man accused of withholding information from North Carolina law enforcement about a missing girl's death is scheduled to be in court.

Thirty-two-year-old Adolphus Earl Kimrey is scheduled to be in court in Jacksonville on Monday for his first appearance hearing.

Kimrey is charged with disposing of a body that died from unnatural causes and obstruction of justice. He faces several other charges for a home break-in and burglary.

Missing NC girl Mariah Woods' body found in creek; arrest made. Walter Perez reports during Action News at 11 p.m. on December 2, 2017.

Investigators say Kimrey is the live-in boyfriend of Kristy Woods, the mother of 3-year-old Mariah Woods. She was reported missing Nov. 27. Her body was found in a creek Saturday.

Kimrey is being held in the Onslow County Jail in Jacksonville. District Attorney Erie Lee says more charges are possible, based on the results of the medical examiner's report.
