LOUISBURG, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say they will charge a 16-year-old boy in the killings of a Louisburg mother and her daughter.

Investigators say the suspect is the brother of 34-year-old Ricky Toney, who was killed by police in a shootout after a long chase in Warren County. Authorities say the teen was in the car with Toney and was shot in the hand.

Deputies say the teen helped Toney killed his 37-year-old estranged wife and her 16-year-old daughter at their home in Louisburg early Tuesday morning. The chase started several hours later when Vance County deputies say they spotted Toney in his dead wife’s car.

Authorities say Toney was also a suspect in a killing on Dec. 20 in Vance County.
