A Charles City man is charged with murder after a Thursday house fire where one man was found dead. Twenty-three-year-old Christopher Charles North has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder and first-degree arson after the death of 23-year-old Jason Kapping. North was booked into the Floyd County Jail on Sunday afternoon and is being held on one-and-three-quarters million dollar bond, according to information provided by the Charles City police department.
