DULUTH - Police are seeking a Duluth man wanted in connection with the slaying of his neighbor, who was found dead in her home Tuesday afternoon.

Alvenio Johnny Culpepper, 33, of 3054 Davenport Road, Apt. 1, is wanted on a felony murder charge for allegedly killing Jenny Rider Neville, 64, his next-door neighbor, said Cpl. Darren Moloney, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Police Department.

Moloney said police responded to the call about 5:30 p.m. near the intersection of Davenport and Pittard Roads.

Upon arriving at Neville's home, 3054 Davenport Road, Apt. 2, she was pronounced dead by authorities, Moloney said.

His direction of travel is unknown.
