ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (WTKR) -- A man has been charged in connection with the death of a Kitty Hawk mother of two after the medical examiner initially ruled her death as undetermined.

A Dare County grand jury returned a true bill of indictment Monday charging John "Jay" Curtis Tolson with one count of second-degree murder in the death of LeeAnn Fletcher. Authorities served Tolson with the arrest warrant, and he was taken into custody by the Bangor Police Department in Bangor, Maine, without incident.

Fletcher died on July 25, three days before her 39th birthday.

A 911 call obtained from the Fletcher family shows that her boyfriend, Tolson, made a call to police on July 22.

"My friend is laying in the tub and she won't wake up. I think she fell last night," he said in the call.

Fletcher was rushed to the trauma center at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, where she later died.

Two weeks ago, News 3 obtained a copy of the autopsy report for Fletcher. Virginia’s medical examiner ruled Fletcher’s exact cause of death as undetermined. The autopsy report showed she suffered injuries from blunt force trauma to her head.
