HENDERSON Co., NC (WSPA) – A man is accused of murdering a woman, according to the Henderson Co. Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies got a call requesting a health and welfare check on a woman in the 200 block of DuPont Estates Drive around 9 p.m. on July 10.

When they got there they found the woman — identified as Laura Cox, 54 — dead and called the Violent Crimes Unit.

They detained Terry Jason Brank, 35, who lives at the same house.

He was later charged with first-degree murder and is in jail under no bond.

The sheriff’s office says they have responded to the home numerous times in the past for domestic related calls.

Deputies are still investigating.
