A 68-year old Silver Creek man has been arrested on a felony warrant charging him with concealing the death of another.

According to the warrant, James William Whitaker hindered the discovery of a deceased woman who was in his Harris Road residence for three days.

After a relative called 911 to ask for a welfare check, Whitaker refused to allow first responders into the home.

Once authorities gained entry, the body was located at the entryway, partially covered by multiple fabrics.

Whitaker was also charged with possession of methamphetamine.
