FIRST ON WITN: Autopsy Says New Bern Deaths Murder-Suicide

Preliminary autopsy results show a deadly double shooting last week in New Bern was a murder-suicide.

Brittany Jones and Johnnie Neely were found dead inside a home on Julia Clay Street Friday afternoon. Police say both people had been shot.

While New Bern police say it could be three months to a year before the cause of deaths are know, the Onslow County Medical Examiner's Office tells WITN News that the 20-year-old Jones died from multiple gunshot wounds, while Neely, who was 25-years-old, died from a single gun shot wound to the head.

The Medical Examiner's Office lists Jones' death as a homicide and Neely's death as suicide.
