A Forsyth County resident has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a woman listed with a North Wilkesboro address.

Kayla Melissa Dubuque, 25, was found deceased in a home at 5823 Loradale Drive, Kernersville, which is the address of Jaron Alan Kubler, 29.

The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., reported that Kubler approached officers with that department about 2 a.m. Sunday near the Capital One Arena on F Street in Washington and stated that he had committed a murder in North Carolina.

The Metropolitan Police Department reported that after it contacted the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, officers entered Kubler’s home on Loradale Drive in Kernersville and confirmed that a possible homicide had occurred.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that a Forsyth Sheriff’s Office spokesman said Forsyth deputies went to the Loradale Drive home on Sunday as part of a death investigation and found a woman there deceased. The cause of death hasn’t been made clear.

Kubler was held in Washington on a fugitive-from-justice warrant until Forsyth deputies brought him to Winston-Salem on Wednesday and charged him first-degree murder, kidnapping and the misdemeanor offense of solicitation of prostitution. He waived an extradition hearing.

Kubler was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury in Greene County in May 2013 and was sentenced to four years in prison. He was released on parole in March 2015. Kubler was convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon In Burke County in January 2009 and was sentenced to two months in prison.

According to Dubuque’s obituary, she was born in Wilkes County and lived in North Wilkesboro. Records also list her with an address on White Rock Road in Winston-Salem.

Dubuque’s parents, step-mother and some of her siblings and other relatives live in Wilkes, according to her obituary. A memorial service was held for Dubuque Friday at Miller Funeral Chapel in North Wilkesboro.
