Levi Norwood, now 19, faced two first-degree murder charges in the fatal shootings of his 34-year-old mother, Jennifer Norwood, and his 6-year-old brother Wyatt, on Valentine’s Day.
Two days later he was picked up by police after allegedly shoplifting hair dye, clothing, and a backpack at a Durham, NC Target. He was 17 at the time of his arrest.
One of the charges was decreased to second-degree murder, 7News has learned.
At the time of his arrest, Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office said there was no history of 911 calls to the home.
His father came home on Valentine’s Day and found his wife and younger son dead inside their home in the 12000 block of Elk Run Road. He called 911 Levi also allegedly shot his father Joshua, but he survived that shooting.
After hours of trying to make contact with the shooter, at about 10:15 p.m. officers entered the home and he was not found. Officers searched the home and the property.
When he was not found in the house, they conducted a bloodhound track to an area off of Route 28 and a massive manhunt was launched. Two days later, a Target store employee reported a shoplifter in Durham, NC and he was taken into custody.
