WINTON, N.C. (AP) — Hertford County deputies say a husband shot and killed his estranged wife then committed suicide as she tried to move her things out of a home in Winton.

Investigators said 56-year-old James McCutcheon Jr. also shot the couple’s young daughter Friday morning, and she was taken to a hospital.

Deputies say 40-year-old Catherine McCutcheon and her uncle were moving items out of the home when her estranged husband came over and started to argue.

Authorities say James McCutcheon shot his wife in the chest and daughter in the side before shooting himself in the head.

Deputies say they do not know the girl’s condition.
