CLEMMONS, N.C. — Davidson County Sheriff David Grice says investigators have ruled the shooting deaths of a Clemmons couple to be domestic-related.

According to Grice, deputies responded to the Sunset Road home of Timothy and Emily Benbow around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday after a family member found the two dead inside.

Grice says investigators “concluded that the incident was domestic-related.”

The shooting happened earlier in the day, Grice said.

A three-year-old child was found alive inside the home, Grice said.  The child, who was not physically harmed, is now staying with relatives.

No other details were available.
