Suspect in North Carolina homicide killed; girlfriend arrested

One of the cornerstones of this country is the Constitution and the rights it affords. Many rights stemming from the document deal with how those suspected of a crime will be treated, including the presumption of innocence. As a result, all those suspected of a crime are considered innocent unless proved otherwise. Despite this right, it is easy for those in law enforcement to jump to conclusions without the benefit of a fair trial. Unfortunately, one suspect is dead after he became a suspect in a North Carolina double homicide, and his girlfriend was arrested and is accused of accessory after the fact.

Police believe that the deceased suspect murdered a married couple -- an 82-year-old man and 78-year-old woman -- in their home. Their bodies were discovered by their son the evening after their death. It is unclear what led police to the now-deceased suspect.

The 34-year-old man was tracked down in Pennsylvania; however, when police attempted to serve a search warrant on the hotel room where police say the suspect, his girlfriend and a third individual were, a shot was reportedly fired and a standoff ensued. Police say that the suspect committed suicide during the standoff. The girlfriend and the third individual -- said to have been a hitchhiker -- were taken into custody. The 38-year-old woman is suspected of being an accessory to the murder after the fact. Her exact connection to the alleged crime is unclear.

When facing criminal charges, such as homicide or accessory to murder, defendants in North Carolina often have several options available. For example, they could choose to fight the charges against them in court or accept a plea deal. Unfortunately, it is often difficult for people without legal experience to determine the best course of action for their individual situation. As a result, these people often need the assistance of an experienced attorney as they navigate through the judicial process.
