A second Alexander County resident has now been charged in connection to a double-homicide in Gaston County. 21-year old Kaleb Isiah Carver of Taylorsville was taken into custody on Monday afternoon (February 22) by Alexander County Sheriff’s Deputies and Gaston County Police. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.
As WHKY previously reported, 19-year-old Michael Shane Barnes of Taylorsville was arrested early Monday morning on the same charges. They’re charged in connection to the fatal shootings of 22-year-old Robert Lucas Gibby and 19-year-old Adam Kale Wood. They were found last Thursday (February 18) when officers responded to a location in Gaston County. One other person sustained non life-threatening injuries in the incident.
Carver was being held in the Gaston County jail without bond. Both suspects were scheduled to appear in District Court today (February 23).[Story and photo courtesy of Rick Gilbert, WACB]
