MACON COUNTY, N.C. (WSPA) – A woman was arrested for killing her parent and another victim at a home in Macon County.
The Macon County Sheriff’s Office charged Divinity Aleza Guest with two counts of second-degree murder.
Deputies said they received a welfare check Monday from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office before 10 p.m. at a home on Mack Branch Road.
Upon arrival, deputies located two bodies that were in different rooms inside the residence. Both victims appeared to have died from gunfire.

Guest is the daughter of one of the victims, deputies said.

An autopsy of both victims is being conducted in Winston Salem according to deputies.
Guest was booked into the Macon County Detention Center on a million-dollar bond.
Deputies said the investigation is ongoing and will continue to follow up with other information including seeking others who may be involved.
