Slain Woman's Husband Hired Strippers, Escort Service Says
New information could call into question the character of a prominent Rocky Mount funeral home owner accused of plotting with his girlfriend to kill his wife.
Authorities later arrested Mark Bowling and Rose Vincent, who police said drove to the Bowlings' home and shot Julie Bowling multiple times. Mark Bowling was out of town at the time.
Authorities have not offered any motive for why Julie Bowling might have been killed when she was, but search warrants revealed that Mark Bowling and Vincent had been involved in a romantic relationship for about a year and had planned the crime.
People who know Bowling were shocked and said the allegations are completely out of character for him.
