FLETCHER, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said a man has been charged after is wife's body was found in Buncombe County Wednesday.

Brian Walter Jones, 40, was charged with the first-degree murder of his wife, Lynn Jones, 43, according to Buncombe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Natalie Bailey.

Bailey said the body was found at a home on North Holly Lane in the Fletcher area.

Sheriff Van Duncan was at the scene of the investigation and said they were treating it as a homicide case.

Duncan said a family member stopped by a mobile home about 11:20 a.m. after they had not seen the victim for a few days, and when they entered the home, they found the person dead.

Duncan said the investigators believe the death was not "some random occurrence" and may be another "family-type" situation.

He also spoke about several other recent homicides at the scene of the most recent death investigation after a man and woman were found dead in a home on David Court earlier Wednesday, according to deputies. The case is being investigated as a murder-suicide, according to the sheriff.

Deputies have now investigated several deaths since early November, though not all cases were classified as homicides. Several of the victims died on or were discovered on Wednesdays, though Duncan said he does not think there is any "rhyme or reason" to the "coincidence" of Wednesday cases.

Deputies searched for Brian Jones for a short period on Wednesday and announced that he was taken into custody at about 5:30 p.m.
