NC teen charged in deaths of father, stepmother


PINEVILLE, NC (AP) - A 15-year-old has been charged with murder in the shooting deaths of his father and stepmother in Pineville.

Authorities say the teen was charged Monday in the deaths of his father, 43-year-old Christian Hans Liewald, and his 24-year-old stepmother, Cassie Meghan Buckaloo.

Police say the teen called police twice early Monday, saying he had shot the two and that he would wait on a nearby street corner for officers to pick him up. Police didn't identify the teen because of his age.

He's also charged with armed robbery and attempted auto theft. He's being held in a juvenile detention facility.

Police have not released a motive.

A vigil was held Monday night at the Morningstar United Methodist Church, where Buckaloo taught Sunday school.
