NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) - The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office is releasing more information on the three people killed in the Plantation Village Retirement Community Friday.

Investigators say that 79-year-old Darrell Simpson shot and killed his nephew, 59-year-old Steven Heald, then shot and killed his 79-year-old-wife Linda Simpson. He then shot himself.

The Sheriff's Office offered more information about the motive of the murder-suicide, but out of respect for the family we're choosing not to release it.
