A Bertie County man has now been indicted for the murders of his wife and two small children 37 years ago.
The grand jury on Monday indicted Roy Rascoe on three counts of first degree murder and one count of arson.
Rascoe was arrested in late August for the November 26, 1972 deaths of his wife, Annie, his one-year-old daughter, Retta, and his two-year old son, Tony. The fire destroyed the couple's home outside of Windsor.
Sheriff Greg Atkins says because of the indictment, a probable cause hearing scheduled for later this week will not take place.
