North Carolina man accused of murder during robbery

When a crime occurs, there is an understandable desire for answers. Unfortunately, these answers may take a significant amount of time to uncover. Despite this, a man in North Carolina was recently arrested in connection to an alleged murder just hours after the deceased victim's body was discovered.

The incident that led to the man's arrest reportedly happened just after 5 a.m. on a day in early May. Police reportedly responded to the home of a 78-year-old woman after receiving reports of an alarm at the residence. Responding officers allegedly discovered the woman's body inside her home, and police believed that she was stabbed during a robbery.

Charges filed in North Carolina after fatal accident

Most people would likely agree that motorcycles are sometimes more difficult to see because of their smaller size. As a result, drivers must take extra precautions. Unfortunately, a fatal accident in North Carolina demonstrates the potential harm that motorcyclists face while utilizing the roadways.

The accident happened during the afternoon hours of a day in mid-April. According to reports, a sports utility vehicle driven by a 69-year-old man struck the rear of a motorcycle. The impact pushed the motorcycle in the back of a pickup truck.

Family law proceeding of divorce more common in certain areas

Research shows that between 40% and 50% of marital unions end in divorce throughout the United States, including North Carolina. Unfortunately, where a person lives might contribute to his or her likelihood of going through the family law proceeding of divorce. Researchers recently determined that states with fewer instances of divorce have some things in common.

First, divorce is less likely for those who live in an area that does not breed high amounts of stress. The reason for this is that when couples are stressed about family drama, finances or work, this can end up harming their relationships. In the same manner, states where people had less debt related to student loans are more likely to have lower rates of divorce.

Charges for resisting arrest aren't always for attempting escape

"You'll never take me alive, Coppers!" That's the classic James Cagney, old mobster impersonation many of us might think back to when considering what it means to resist an arrest.

But, charges for resisting arrest in the state of North Carolina aren't always pressed for car chases or other fleeing defendants. This offense could also count in the following ways.

4 injured, 1 killed in North Carolina fatal crash

For many people, it is hard to fathom that an entire family's world can come crashing down in a matter of seconds. In fact, drivers who fail to remain vigilant at all times can easily cause an accident with life-changing consequences in which victims have no time to respond. Unfortunately, a fatal crash in North Carolina has likely changed the lives of the victims forever.

The incident happened one night in late March. According to reports, the driver of a tractor-trailer hauling a logging trailer that was empty failed to stop at a stop sign at a North North Carolina intersection. As a result, the truck is said to have struck a sports utility vehicle.

Who can claim children as dependents following a divorce?

There is no question that the end of a marriage is a significant life event. Even couples who have only been together a relatively short amount of time often have multiple decisions to make to extricate their lives from one another. Couples with children will have to continue to have a relationship, likely for the rest of their lives. One of the many important questions for couples in North Carolina who have sought a divorce involves claiming children as dependents when filing taxes.

The fight to claim a child as a dependent is an understandable one as doing so can have a significant impact on taxes. In addition to providing the ability to file as the head of the household, additional credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit can lower a person's tax bill. The IRS has a set of rules that helps determine who will receive the credits.

Murder charge against North Carolina teen in father's death

It is often difficult for police to determine exactly what happened when a crime occurs or is believed to have occurred. While certain circumstances may seem to paint a particular picture, there is often no way to fully prove what actually happened to the standard required by the court of a conviction of crimes. Despite this, a teenager in North Carolina is now charged with murder in the death of his father.

Police and rescue workers were reportedly called to a home in April 2018. A 16-year-old at the scene reportedly told responders that he found his father in a recliner. The latter was unconscious, and the teenager claimed that there was a dog leash wrapped around the man's neck; the dog was reportedly still attached to the leash.

Charges filed following fatal North Carolina car accident

Drivers in North Carolina and across the country know that they must remain alert in order to allow them time to respond to hazardous situations. Unfortunately, even the most vigilant drivers may not be able to respond to a vehicle that suddenly pulls into their path. In fact, a woman has recently lost her life in a car accident that resulted in charges against another driver.

The incident happened just after 7:30 a.m. on a day in early February. According to police reports, a 31-year-old woman was southbound on a North Carolina roadway. Unfortunately, a 33-year-old man is said to have pulled out of a driving into the woman's path.

Family claims medical malpractice led to woman's death

Patients in North Carolina and across the country who have little medical training often find themselves placing their faith in the decisions and recommendations of their doctors. Unfortunately, doctors are fallible, and a single mistake can have serious consequences for patients. In fact, a family in another state claims that medical malpractice ultimately led to their mother's death.

The allegations surround the removal of the woman's kidneys in May 2018. According to reports, doctors allegedly removed both of her kidneys, suspecting that she was suffering from cancer, despite test results that indicated no malignancy. It was ultimately determined after removal that there was cancer.
