Three dead and two others hurt in assault inside New Bern home

NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — Police say three young people — ages 1, 5 and 12 — were stabbed to death and two other people hurt in an attack at an eastern North Carolina home.

Police said in a statement Wednesday that 18-year-old Eh Lar Doh Htoo is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

The names of the three people killed in the Tuesday night attack haven't been released, nor has any possible motive.

An adult and another juvenile were wounded.

Lt. Ronda Allen says the suspect and victims knew each other. She says that all are Burmese and that a language barrier is affecting the investigation.

Htoo is expected to appear in court Thursday.

District attorney Scott Thomas says more charges are expected.
