Investigators say they think a funeral home owner began having an affair with a woman about a year before his wife was killed.
Julie Rowland Bowling was killed Friday. Authorities have charged her husband, Mark Anthony Bowling, and another woman, Rose Deloris Vincent, with first-degree murder.
Authorities say they think the relationship between Vincent and Mark Bowling might have been the motive for the shooting. Julie Bowling's body was found by a co-worker Friday morning in the couple's home in Rocky Mount. Mark Bowling was in Florida at the time of the shooting.
Vincent and Mark Bowling will appear in court today.
