A man charged with murdering a missing Wise County woman led investigators to a woman's makeshift grave, according to the Wise County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies arrested David Malone during the weekend after he allegedly led investigators to the remains of a woman, northeast of Decatur.

Investigators said Malone was the last person seen with 28-year-old Samantha McNorton, who disappeared two weeks ago from Runaway Bay.

They said Malone not only confessed to killing McNorton but also told them where to find her buried body.

Malone is charged with murder and is being held on a $2 million bond.

The medical examiner in Dallas will officially identify the remains, which are assumed to be McNorton's.
