N.C. man charged with murder in deaths of mother, girlfriend

CARY, N.C. -- A man who allegedly told police he murdered his wife and girlfriend over the weekend is expected to make his first court appearance Monday, reports CBS affiliate WRAL.

According to authorities, Brandon Lee, 34, called police at 3:41 p.m. Sunday, claiming to have killed the two women. Police say that 58-year-old Christa Lee was found at the home listed as Lee's address.

His girlfriend, 28-year-old Krystal Juell Hylton, was found at another apartment complex, according to the station.

Lee was then arrested and charged with two counts of murder. He is currently being held at the Wake County Public Safety Center without bond, reports the station.

Lee faced multiple charges earlier this year for first-degree trespassing, communicating threats, injury to personal property, and disorderly conduct.

Only three other murders have been reported in Cary -- a town located west of Raleigh -- this year, according to the station.

Anybody with information is asked to call the Cary Police Department at 919-469-4012 or Crime Stoppers at 919-460-4636.
