Bobby Joe Jackson, 45, is charged with murder, kidnapping and robbery.
Iredell County sheriff’s deputies began searching for Stikeleather on Monday night when Ruth, his wife of 69 years, reported that he never came home after going to meet Jackson.
Stikeleather’s family said he left home on Monday to meet with someone who owed him past-due rent and then proceeded to the bank. Stikeleather was wearing dark blue dress pants, a light blue shirt and a tan windbreaker jacket. He was also wearing a blue cap.
