BEAUFORT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - A man and a woman are dead after an apparent murder/suicide Wednesday night in Beaufort County.
Deputies say an 8-year-old child in the house at the time was not injured.
Deputies say around 9:30 p.m. they were called to a home on Betsy Elbow Road for a domestic assault in progress.
They found two people dead at the home.
Bobbie Jean Woolard, 48, was discovered shot to death inside the home, while 50-year-old Don Woolard, Jr. was found outside with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
