STANLEY, N.C. —
Nearly five months after an unspeakable tragedy rocked the small community of Stanley, residents are still finding it difficult to heal."It's a very tight community here and it's hurt, it's hurt everybody," said Stanley resident Donald Davis."The community deals with it because it comes to a situation where you have to deal with it," said Stanley resident James Jackson.On April 7, 6-year-old Chloe Arwood and her cousin, 7-year-old James Caldwell, were killed after a massive dirt pit caved in on top of them.Investigators said Chloe's father, 31-year-old Jordan Arwood, dug the hole on his parents' property.He was later arrested after authorities said they found guns and drugs inside his home.Now, Eyewitness News has learned that Arwood has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of firearm possession and manufacturing marijuana.But those charges could be just the beginning. Lincoln County sheriff's investigators said they are close to wrapping up their case in the deaths of the two children.Arwood could ultimately face charges of involuntary manslaughter.
