NC father of dirt collapse victim faces charges


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – The North Carolina father who was working in a two-story-deep dirt hole that collapsed and killed his daughter and her cousin is facing involuntary manslaughter charges.

Lincoln County Sheriff David Carpenter says 31-year-old Jordan Arwood is charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Carpenter says the charges were filed Thursday following a lengthy investigation.

Arwood was operating a backhoe in a pit in April when the walls caved in on the children. The bodies of 6-year-old Chloe Jade Arwood and 7-year-old James Levi Caldwell were dug out the next day.

While investigating, sheriff’s deputies removed guns and a marijuana plant from Arwood’s home.
