A McRae man has been charged in a homicide that took place in March 2020, deputies said.

Deputies received a 911 call on March 4, 2020, around 6:45 a.m. for a possible dead person located at 115 Lynn St. in McRae, according to a news release from the White County sheriff’s office.

Upon arrival, authorities located, 72-year-old Keith Crisco, dead inside the home with apparent trauma to the head, which was later confirmed by the state Crime Lab, deputies said.
