A Charlotte man accused of raping his adopted teenage sister turned himself in Monday and was being questioned in connection with her shooting death at a school bus stop, police said.
Royce Anthony Mitchell, 36, is a "person of interest" in the slaying of Tiffany Wright, 15, in north Charlotte, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokesman.
Tiffany, who was eight months pregnant and living in a foster home, was shot about 6 a.m. Monday while waiting to catch the bus to Hawthorne High School.
Medics rushed her to Carolinas Medical Center, where doctors were able to deliver her baby girl. Tiffany died at the hospital, and the baby was listed in critical condition.
Police issued warrants Monday against Mitchell for statutory rape and indecent liberties with a minor, based on their investigation into Tiffany's death. A police spokesman said Tiffany had been adopted into the Mitchell family, and was the victim of the alleged sex crimes.
