    NC - Robert Hearne, 71, found murdered, Ellendale, 9 March 2016

    An Alexander County sheriff’s deputy found two people trying to dispose of a body behind an abandoned house in the Ellendale community, officials said.


    Investigators have a man and a woman in custody, but investigators don’t know if there are other people involved.


    "We brought him up here. I just panicked to hide him. I didn't know what to do," Tony Hearne said.

    Tony Hearne told Channel 9's Dave Faherty that he isn't a killer and was only defending himself when he choked his uncle Robert Adam Hearne Jr. to death.


    "I never wanted to fight my uncle but he came in and came at me with his knife. So we were fighting and I tried to defend myself. He was choking me and I was choking him,” Tony Hearne said.


    apparently the plan was to bury the body but the car got stuck and people noticed them there. When officers arrived they found drag marks leading from the car to the body.
