UPDATE: Raleigh police charge 3 in Bladen Co. native’s murder

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina police say they’ve found no prior connections between a woman killed in her apartment and three people charged with murder.

Raleigh police detectives said Wednesday they’ve charged the suspects with killing Melissa Dawn Huggins-Jones days before her 31st birthday last week. Huggins-Jones had moved to Raleigh two weeks earlier from Cleveland, Tenn. for a new job and a fresh start. She was originally from Elizabethtown in Bladen County

The suspects in custody are 23-year-old Ronald Lee Anthony Jr., 18-year-old Sarah Rene Redden and 20-year-old Travian Devonte Smith. All three are facing murder charges and are in the Wake County Jail.

Huggins-Jones’ 8-year-old daughter found her mother covered in blood inside their new home and sought help from construction workers building apartments in the complex.
