A Story County man has been arrested and charged with murder following the discovery of a woman's body inside a home in Cambridge last night.

44 year old Jeremy Cory is being held in the Story County Jail.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Agent Mike Motsinger told a news conference Tuesday morning the criminal complaint  says the woman had suffered several gunshot wounds. 

It also says Cory did not tell authorities the body had been in the home since Friday.

Investigators did find shell casings near the unidentified woman's body and they have found a gun that matches them.

Huxley Police Chief Mark Pote says authorities had been called to the home on three other occasions before going to check on the woman's welfare Monday night.
