Investigators are still looking into a murder between two families in Elizabethtown.

Police said 22-year-old Caleb Stoker shot and killed 41-year-old Ricky Carroll next to the boat ramp at Tory Hole Park nearly two weeks ago.

WWAY has been told Carroll did not approve of Stoker dating his daughter, and wanted to settle things in person.

Investigators are waiting on autopsy and lab results, before they file any charges.

CHARLOTTE — Officials have cut $1.5 million from mental health services in the Charlotte area after North Carolina state budget cuts reduced funds.

The Charlotte Observer reported Monday that the cuts will reduce a program that supports pregnant women with substance abuse problems. Mecklenburg County officials also are delaying the opening of a crisis center by three months.

County mental health officials say the department faced a $4 million shortfall as a result of county budget cuts on top of state budget cuts.
