COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Christian counselor in Columbus County is charged with second degree murder.

The Sheriff's Office says Michael Shawn Brown bonded out of jail this afternoon on a $50,000 bond for the death of Larry Townes back in March.

Brown told detectives Townes startled him because he came in Brown's Christian Counseling Center near Tabor City after hours and tried to rob him, but investigators are exploring other options after they found out Townes was not armed. They are also looking into a fire at the counseling center last month as a possible arson.
