 A Mocksville man is in the Guilford County Jail without privilege of bond, accused of murdering a woman with whom he had a relationship.

Anthony Clay Campbell, 53, of Charleston Ridge Road, was arrested last week at his Mocksville home for the murder of Joyce Price Eaton of High Point.

Guilford Sheriff B.J. Barnes said that cell phone records placed Campbell at Eaton’s place of work on June 11, and where her vehicle and body were later recovered. He called it a case of “love, greed and deceit.”

He said Campbell and Eaton had a business relationship that escalated into a personal relationship in recent months. Eaton’s body was found in McLeansville. She had been shot once and had several cuts to the neck.

Campbell’s next court appearance is July 30. He could face the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted.

Campbell operated a company “Tony Campbell Shop to Help Others,” that appeared to be a way for people to shop and help specific charities. Online reports show several complaints of people who invested money in the company but never saw a return.
