A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties from 6pm Thursday through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
Two skull fractures, a broken nose, broken jaw and multiple bruises on his body: those are the injuries authorities say a Camp Lejeune Marine inflicted on a nine-month-old boy, the son of his live in girlfriend. Daniel Thomas Whitehill of Richlands is now charged with abuse and being held without bond in the Onslow County Jail. Authorities say he slammed the child's head against a crib, and then lifted the baby off the floor by his legs and hit his head against the floor. Sheriff Ed Brown says the child is in serious condition at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
