TARBORO -- A couple charged with murder in the death of their 13-year-old son - who police say died after he was tied to a tree for two nights - have made a brief appearance in a North Carolina court. Attorneys appeared Monday with 41-year-old Brice Brian McMillan and his wife 36-year-old Sandra Elizabeth McMillan of Macclesfield. Edgecombe County District Court Judge Joseph Harper formally informed the couple of the charges against them. A probable cause hearing was scheduled for July 2. Edgecombe County Sheriff James Knight said the McMillans are accused of tying the boy to a tree for two nights to punish him for disobedience. He was found unresponsive outside the house on Thursday.
