DUNN, N.C. (AP) -- Harnett County authorities accuse a 56-year-old man of robbing and killing his former boss.
The sheriff's office says James Davis is charged with murder in the death of 76-year-old Charles Stewart. Additional charges are pending.
Sheriff Larry Rollins accuses Davis of breaking into Stewart's home in Dunn about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, and beating Stewart and his wife before fleeing with guns, jewelry and cash.
Deputies responding to a 911 call found Stewart dead outside. Stewarts' injured, 62-year-old wife was found inside and taken to Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital.
Davis was found at an abandoned home in Clinton about 7:45 p.m. The Stewarts' stolen van was also there.
Rollins says Davis used to work for Stewart before he was let go about a year ago.
