- Earl Kimrey, the man accused of concealing the death of 3-year-old Mariah Woods, will appear in court Monday in Onslow County. But they left little doubt Earl Kimrey knew how she died and was trying to cover it up. Kimrey's previous charges include larceny, assault and drunk and disorderly conduct, according to the state's online records.

Three-year-old Mariah Woods was reported missing from her home in Jacksonville, North Carolina, around 6 a.m. November 27, prompting a massive search effort involving state and local police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and hundreds of volunteers.

Her body was found Saturday in a creek.

Police and volunteer groups had been searching the areas surrounding the family's home for Woods since she was reported missing last weekend. "The arrest warrants are public record and the records speaks for themselves". Woods told authorities that she put her daughter to bed Sunday evening and woke up to find her gone from their house in Jacksonville.

"We have recovered what we believe are the remains of little Mariah Woods", said Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller. Woods said her boyfriend, Kimrey, also checked on her around midnight.

"My daughter wanted to give Mariah one of her own teddy bears just to show her that we love her", said Megan James, who has a three-year-old like Mariah. "We will not discuss any details related to the homicide investigation".

The mom assumed Mariah had been abducted and made an emotional plea for her safe return. For now, prosecutors have not commented on whether or not they believe Mariah's mother played a role in the crime or if more people will be charged. According to local authorities, Kimrey, 32, was arrested on Friday and charged with concealing of death, obstruction of justice, 2nd degree burglary, felony larceny, and possession of stolen property. Woods told WCTI-TV in New Bern earlier in the week. "Someone just walked right up in there, grabbed the 3-year-old out of the bed and she didn't cry, she didn't scream?" he said.
