Cumberland County Sheriff's Office charged Zachary Richardson with first-degree murder in the Oct. 2022 killing of Don Flournoy.

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- A 34-year-old man is behind bars accused in the murder of a 58-year-old man that happened Oct. 28, 2022.

Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said Zachary Maurice Richardson shot and killed Don Flournoy at a home on Eclar Drive off Crystal Springs Road.

Richardson and a woman from Hope Mills were both wanted for questioning in the investigation. However, after more evidence was uncovered, the sheriff's office announced that the woman was no longer wanted for questioning; instead, they just wanted Richardson.
