RONDA, North Carolina — A man and woman have been shot to death in Wilkes County and a teen has been charged with two counts of murder.

Thirty-four-year-old Richard Thomas Holloway of Austin and 32-year-old Amanda Victoria Transeau were killed in the shooting near the town of Ronda last week.

The Wilkes County sheriff's office said deputies were called to a report of shots fired at a residence. Deputies found the man and woman dead at the scene.

Deputies have not released a motive in the shootings, but described it as a domestic dispute. Authorities did not say how the teen and the victims knew each other or why they were at his home.
