Son accused of killing mother and another woman

Joseph Matteson, 31, is charged with two counts of First Degree Murder.

The Robeson County Sheriff's Office says he shot and killed his mother, Donna Matteson, and Kathy Bullard at a home on Highway 211 in the Red Springs community on February 13.

Deputies say he shot Bullard's son, Mark Bullard. After being shot, Bullard was able to severely beat Matteson.

He's charged with Attempted Murder for that shooting.

Matteson has been in the hospital for his injuries since that time.

He appeared in court Thursday morning for his initial appearance.
