Two Knives Recovered From NC Decapitation Scene

Police in Clayton, NC say investigators found two large knives in the home where a 4-year-old girl was decapitated.

Authorities say a butcher knife and a kitchen knife with a serrated edge were recovered.

Katlin Violette's body was discovered Friday by her mother at their Johnston County home about 15 miles southeast of Raleigh.

Clayton Police Chief Glen Allen says John Patrick Violette will be brought back Wednesday afternoon to North Carolina from Washington, D-C, where he was arrested at a hotel. He was arrested on a felony fugitive warrant and waived extradition Saturday.
