RALEIGH — A North Carolina man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of a 10-month-old infant girl.

Raleigh police arrested 26-year-old Joshua Andrew Stepp on Monday after a 911 call Sunday night about an unresponsive infant at a local home.

The child was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The case is under investigation. It is unclear what relationship Stepp had with the child. They both lived in the Raleigh home.

Stepp is currently at the Wake County Jail on a $500,000 secured bond for a first-degree sex offense charge in the case. The murder charge carries no bond.

Stepp is scheduled in court on Tuesday. It is unclear if he has an attorney.

HENDERSON, N.C. — Two children have died in a house fire in northern North Carolina.

Multiple media outlets reported that a 12-year-old girl and her 1-year old brother died in the fire Monday night in Henderson. The children were trapped in the bedroom where the fire started and firefighters were unable to reach them.

Their 16-year-old brother who was looking after them was able to escape and ran for help.

Authorities have not released the names of the victims.

Fire officials do not know where the parents were at the time of the fire. Fire Chief Danny Wilkerson says the cause is still under investigation, but damage was mostly limited to the bedroom.

NC police look into murder-suicide 911 response

FAYETTEVILLE — North Carolina police are investigating why it took more than an hour to dispatch officers to the home of a real estate developer who killed his wife and two teenage children and himself last week.

Multiple media outlets report that Fayetteville police are reviewing a 911 call placed from a landline phone in the home of 47-year-old William Maxwell while he was killing his family.

In the call a female can be heard moaning, followed by a gunshot before the line goes dead. Officers were sent to the home just before Maxwell’s father-in-law called from the home to report a murder-suicide more than an hour after the first 911 call.

The 911 dispatcher had called the phone back after the line went dead but got a busy signal and later left a message on the answering machine.
