Sheriff Hubert Peterkin said that Tommy Charles Brown, 35, and Thalia Rebbecca Mook, 35, were shot at their 110 TC Jones Road home around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Brown and Mook were pronounced dead at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
John Oliver Hill Jr., 48, of 5621 Philippi Church Road, was charged with first-degree murder and placed in the Hoke County jail without bond.
He will likely face more charges once the investigation is complete, Peterkin said. Investigators haven't commented on a motive.
Deputies found 10 firearms at Hill's home, the sheriff said.
