Cordele-- Richard Arthur Bishop, Jr., 39, has been charged with murder in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Fonda Suzette Farr Neisent.

Niesent's body was found in the couples' home on U.S. Highway 280 in Crisp County Tuesday. Investigators think she was killed sometime over the weekend.

Sheriff's deputies won't say how Neisent died until autopsy results come back from the crime lab in Moultrie. But they did say her body was covered with sheets and boxes, as if someone were trying to conceal the body.

Neisent's two children are now with their father.
