Suspect arrested in Wilson double murder

WILSON, N.C. (AP) – Investigators in Wilson County say they have
arrested a suspect in a double murder.
The Wilson Times reports that 45-year-old Verna Lee Farmer was
charged Wednesday with two counts of first-degree murder. He was
being held in the Wilson County jail without bond. Farmer didn’t
have an attorney as of Wednesday night.
Investigators found the bodies of 61-year-old John Henry Little
and 42-year-old Charlene Jones Leake at Little’s home on Monday.
Sheriff Calvin Woodard said during a news conference Wednesday
that a firearm used in the crime was found within a two-mile radius
of Little’s residence. However, he wouldn’t say where the firearm
was found and wouldn’t say how many times the victims were shot.
Woodard said the investigation into the case is continuing.
