S.B.I. Investigating Lenoir County Detective

The Lenoir County Sheriff's Office says detective Chris Russell is on personal leave following a domestic dispute with his wife, a Winterville Police officer. The sheriff's office says Russell's wife was taken to Lenoir Memorial Hospital following the weekend incident and treated and released. The sheriff's office says Russell may return to desk duty next week. The State Bureau of Investigation will turn its findings over to the district attorney who will then make a recommendation on whether or not any charges will be filed.
