PLYMOUTH, N.C. — Police in North Carolina have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of a pregnant woman in his parents’ house.

Local media outlets report Plymouth Police Chief Willie Williams said 32-year-old Robert Holley was arrested at his home Thursday and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Kendra Norman.

Norman, a mother of four, was found shot to death on Sunday.

According to police, Holley is the uncle of the victim’s 11/2-year old son. His parents own the home where the shooting occurred.

Holley is being held on a $1.5 million bond, and it’s not known if he has an attorney. His first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday in Washington County.
