Police in Hickory are investigating a weekend murder and assault.

Someone found 43-year-old Maurice Hunsucker dead outside the Robo Car Wash on 11th Avenue Northeast Saturday afternoon.

A short time later, police arrested 53-year-old Roger Frenceschini. They say he stabbed Hunsucker at least once, but it's not clear what led up to the stabbing.

Frenceschini is being held without bail and is expected in court Monday.
