Man charged with killing Ripley woman
(2007-01-11)
(WOUB) - A man suspected of killing a Ripley woman is in jail.

Jackson County deputies arrested 43 year old Charles Michael Biehl Wednesday evening at a homeless shelter in Charleston. Biehl is being held at the South Central Regional Jail.

Jackson County Sheriff Michael Bright says Biehl will be charged with murder in the death of 50 year old Sharon Farren.

Farren's nephew found her body in her home Monday morning. Bright says she was beaten and strangled with a telephone cord.

Biehl had lived with Farren since at least the beginning of the year.

Bright wouldn't comment on a possible motive.
