New Hanover County Sheriff's deputies arrested Gerard Edward Altman Thursday afternoon. He has been charged with two counts of first degree murder in Wednesday's double murder in the Ogden area. Gerard Altman is the son of Laura Gallagher, one of the victims. Wednesday, deputies making a welfare check found the bodies of 58-year-old Laura and her 70-year-old husband James inside their home in Ogden. Investigators said a neighbor called the sheriff's office asking a deputy to come check on the folks who lived at 424 Westridge Court. Deputies entered the house and found the Gallaghers dead.
