ONSLOW COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – Deputies in Onslow County say a man early Friday morning killed his fiancee and her teenage son.
Christopher Kornegay has been charged with two counts of murder.
Deputies were checking out a disturbance at a home on Adagio Trail near Richlands when they found the 31-year-old man armed and standing in the roadway.
Inside the home, deputies discovered 40-year-old Audrey White and her 14-year-old son, Ardrie White, both dead from apparent gunshot wounds.
Deputies say the woman was recently engaged to Kornegay, who has a court appearance set for March 6th.
There was a history of domestic violence-related issues at the home and this case appears to be related, according to the sheriff’s office.
Onslow County Schools said Ardrie White was an 8th grader at Trexler Middle School where additional counselors were on hand Friday, while the district’s Crisis Team will be at the school on Monday.
