CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. —

Channel 9 uncovered new search warrants connected to a triple shooting in Cabarrus County last week.

Deputies arrested and charged Darryl Anderson with the three deaths.

While going through the new paperwork, Eyewitness News learned a member of Anderson’s family was arrested for murder in a different county.

Anderson’s cousin Christopher Thomas has been in jail since Feb. 7. Anderson has been in the Cabarrus County jail since Feb. 12.
 
Anderson, 38, was denied bond after he was charged with the murder of Sharon Cox, her daughter Jessica Cox and family friend and neighbor Sheila Serrano.
 
Sharon Cox’s other daughter, Veronica Cox, told Channel 9 that Anderson was Jessica Cox’s ex-boyfriend and father of her children. She said the shooting may have been the result of a jealous rage after Serrano set up Jessica Cox with a date.
 
Serrano was found dead on her kitchen floor.
 
Veronica Cox is listed in a search warrant Eyewitness News obtained Monday. She told detecitves she woke up Wednesday to her mother coming into her house asking for help after being shot.
 
According to the warrant, Anderson came in, stood over Sharon Cox and shot her two more times in front of Veronica Cox.
 
It stated he then pointed a gun at Veronica Cox's head and told her to get out of the way.
 
Detectives said they arrested Anderson after they found gunpowder residue on his hands.
Ten days before Anderson’s arrest, his first cousin Thomas was arrested for the murder of 26-year-old father of six Neco Horne.
 
Investigators said Thomas shot Horne at a gas station in Monroe, an attack shown on surveillance video.
Horne's mother was shocked when Channel 9 told her about the family connection over the phone.
               
She said it made her heart hurt all over again. Eyewitness News spoke with Anderson’s sister over the phone Monday. She said her heart goes out to every family involved and she still loves her brother.
