Prosecutor Determines Domestic Violence as Cause for Kinston Woman’s Death

Wake County Prosecutors have recently stated that the murder of a local Kinston woman was a crime of domestic violence.

First-degree murder charges were filed against Grant Ruffin Hayes, 33, and his wife Amanda Perry Hayes, 40. The couple is accused of killing Grant Hayes’ ex-girlfriend 27-year-old Laura Jean Ackerson. Ackerson’s body was found in a Richmond, Texas creek on July, 24, 2011. Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens was told by an Assistant District Attorney that “Grant Hayes wanted to remove Ackerson from his life.”

Ackerson was the mother of Hayes’ two children.
