A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
Deputies say an 11 year old boy was stabbed several times by his mother Thursday.
Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown says it happened in the Southwest community. The boy received several stab wounds to his torso and back. Brown says the boy has since been released from the hospital.
The sheriff says the mother has not been charged, as authorities are awaiting results from other agencies involved in the case.
