LOUISBURG – Authorities said they will charge a 16-year-old boy in the killings of a Louisburg mother and her daughter.

Investigators said the suspect is the brother of 34-year-old Ricky Toney, who was killed by police in a shootout after a long chase in Warren County. Authorities said the teen was in the car with Toney and was shot in the hand.

Deputies said the teen helped Toney killed his 37-year-old estranged wife and her 16-year-old daughter at their home in Louisburg early Tuesday morning. The chase started several hours later when Vance County deputies said they spotted Toney in his dead wife’s car.

Authorities said Toney was also a suspect in a Dec. 20 killing in Vance County.
