Fuquay-Varina woman charged in boyfriend's death

Posted November 9, 2010

— Harnett County deputies arrested a Fuquay-Varina woman early Tuesday in connection with a slaying at her home, authorities said.

Kelly Elizabeth Rose, 37, of 448 Oakridge Duncan Road, was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond in the Harnett County jail.

Rose called the Harnett County 911 center shortly after 11:30 p.m. Monday to ask for EMS assistance at her home. She said that Steven Neva Cain, 33, who also lived at the residence, had suffered an accidental injury, authorities said.

By the time paramedics arrived, Cain was dead, authorities said. Investigators determined that he had suffered wounds to the chest and leg.

No details about Cain's injuries were released, but investigators said he wasn't shot.

The sheriff's office also released no details about a possible motive for the slaying, but deputies said they have responded to domestic calls at the home in the past.

    HEART-SOUL.....please go to Kelly's parents and tell them what you know. Please.

    I know Kelly and the family, I do not think anyone will deny that Kelly abused drugs and has had a troubled past, but I can also attest to the beatings she has endured by his hands...I can recall a night that she came looking for shelter and was bloody from the mouth and nose, soaked in bleach!! I can also attest that sometimes just staying away is as painful as the beating. In her mind, he loved her as much as she wanted to love him. I believe their addictions to drugs, alcohol and one another is primarly to blame here. My prayers are with her, her family and his.

    I personelly took her to the hospital a couple times and i was the one she called or the sherrifs called to come pick her up when she was beating and walking away from him

    I knew her very well and he abused her alot and she tried to leave but he would beg her back and she would go like a fool. She had it bad and he kept beating her up to the point she finally snapped. So for those that say she should burn u are wrong

    If she killed him, she is the abuser... she needs to fry on the electric chair.

    My thoughts & prayers go out to both families as they deal with this situation. It's a sad situation for all involved. May God be with them during this time!
