Arrest Made in Double Homicide

Police in Fayetteville have arrested a man following an investigation into the shooting deaths of his girlfriend and her cousin.

Sgt. Gary Womble says Jermaine Johnson was charged Thursday with two counts of first-degree murder.

He's accused of shooting his girlfriend, Benita McMillan, and her cousin, Tierra Underwood, Wednesday night at a Fayetteville apartment complex.

It couldn't be immediately determined Thursday if Johnson has a lawyer.

Womble says there were three children in the apartment, but none of them appear to have been physically harmed.

Police have not yet determined what may have led to the shooting. Womble says the investigation remains open.

    So if we don't have enough bad news here in our little corner of t the state just import some from elsewhere. There are enough good stories if you will take the time and effort rather than pull another crime story from 90 miles away.
