NEW BERN, NC (AP) - Police say a Burmese immigrant has been charged with murder in the stabbing deaths of three young brothers, ages 1, 5 and 12.
Police in the coastal city of New Bern said Wednesday that 18-year-old Eh Lar Doh Htoo was charged with three counts of murder in the knife attack on a Burmese family that lived in his neighborhood.
Htoo also wounded the brothers' mother and their 14-year-old sister. Police said they don't know a motive for the attack or whether Htoo has an attorney.
His first court appearance was scheduled for Friday.
