NEWTON, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot to death while sitting in a recliner in a North Carolina home.
Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid said a man coming to the Newton home to cut the grass Friday afternoon found a bullet hole in a window and the victim dead from a gunshot wound to the head.
Reid told media outlets that no one else was in the home at the time the body of 19-year-old Justin Smith was found.
Investigators are trying to determine a motive for the killing. No suspect has been identified.
