KANNAPOLIS, N.C. —
Court documents reveal new details in the case of a man charged with seriously injuring his girlfriend and killing her young son. Only a sagging balloon and a dying bouquet of flowers remained Friday as reminders that something horrible happened inside a now-deserted Kannapolis home. Nearly a month ago, police said Eugene Mays savagely attacked his girlfriend, Christi Stewart, and killed her 10-year-old son, Mark. New search warrants filed in the case said it was Stewart's mother who first called police, telling them she hadn't heard from her daughter in two days. In court records, police said when they arrived at Stewart's home for a welfare check, they looked in the back window and saw a bloody shoe and clothing, and bloody footprints. Police said when they went farther inside, they found Stewart "severely injured "on the couch and in the front bedroom, they found Mark, dead on the floor. Eugene Mays was nowhere to be found. In court filings, investigators said they used May's cellphone number to track his movements as he made calls in the hours after the homicide. Police said they triangulated his cellphone signal to a home in Gastonia, where they arrested him and later charged him with first-degree murder. Christi Stewart was released from the hospital but Channel 9 was unable to reach her for comment. Mays remains in the Cabarrus County Jail after he was indicted last week on the murder charge.
