A Wilkes County man has been arrested and charged with murder and incest after investigators found a woman and her young son murdered in their home.
According to the Wilkes County Sheriff's Office, 33-year-old Kelly Marie Pruitt and her 8-year-old son, Kevin Hurley, were reported missing on Thursday. Deputies learned that neither had been seen since last Friday, March 8.
During the investigation, deputies, along with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, went to Pruitt's home along the 2600 of Statesville Road in North Wilkesboro.
It was during that early Friday morning search that investigators found the bodies of Pruitt and her son.
Early indications show that Pruitt's cause of death was the result of multiple stab wounds.
According to investigators, evidence suggests the 8-year-old was suffocated. An exact cause of death will be determined by autopsy.
