A Harnett County man was in custody Sunday on suspected murder charges.

Officials said 51-year-old John Haughton, of 861 Johnson Road, is due to be charged with the murder of his sister-in-law, 45-year-old Roxanne M. Haughton and his nephew, 24-year-old Richard Michael Miller.

Shortly after 10:30 a.m. on Friday, the Harnett County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about two people who had been shot. The caller said that the two people had been shot inside Haughton's residence. The caller was an unidentified family member that also resided at the residence. Haughton and the two victims all lived at the same Johnson Road residence.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the two victims dead and another individual unconscious but with no injuries.

Haughton was admitted to the hospital for undisclosed reasons and will be charged with two counts of first degree murder upon release.
