— A Rocky Mount woman was killed late Tuesday in what police describe as a domestic homicide.

Officers found June Joyner Brown dead in her home, at 108 Falcon Road, police said. Her husband, Joe Clyde Brown Sr., is a suspect in her death, but no charges had been filed as of Wednesday morning, police said.

Joe Brown had several cuts and was taken to Nash General Hospital for treatment. He was later transferred to Pitt Memorial Hospital, in Greenville, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

June Brown's body has been sent to a medical examiner for a Thursday autopsy to determine the cause of her death.

The case remains under investigation.
