Couple found dead in home appears to be domestic case

Hello. It's Friday, November 2. This is Christine Nelson writing you a quick email on the stories we're covering on WBTV News This Morning from 4:30-7:00 a.m.

Details are still coming in this morning on the husband and wife found dead inside their northwest Charlotte home last night. Their son discovered them dead. This morning the community is reacting to seeing this crime take place in their own backyards. Plus, we found out the connection one of the victims had to Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.

Also, a violent turn of event in a three-county police chase overnight. The suspects took off from police but why? At last check there was eventually a foot chase to find one of the suspects. Were police successful? Cam Man Ron Lee is live with the details to answer those questions.

NEW: Have you ever had a gun pointed in your face? Chances are your answer in no. But for the men and women in uniform they face that possibility everyday. Some live to tell about the experience of being wounded in the line of duty. Our John Carter has the story on an event honoring injured law enforcement, with two personal stories that drive home what makes these men and women so brave.

Another new story you haven't seen yet: Do you have a child with diabetes? There's a camp for that! WBTV's Astrid Martinez tells us about what the community is doing to help kids go to this special camp and tells us about a 7-year-old's brave fight with the disease.

Is the weather continuing to cause issues? Meteorologist Al Conklin will pinpoint what's happening right now with the forecast.

See you on the air!
