MARTINSVILLE, Va. - A Henry County teenager faces second-degree murder charges in the slayings of his mother and stepfather.

Henry County sheriff's officials tell media outlets that friends of the family found the bodies of 49-year-old Kathy Bailey Fain and her husband, 52-year-old Charles Darryl Fain, at their home on Wednesday. Both victims had been shot.

Deputies found Kathy Fain's son, 19-year-old Zachary Kasey Bailey, in the Bassett area the same day. He was arrested following an interview with investigators at the Henry County Sheriff's Office.

Police believe the shootings occurred between Sunday afternoon and early Monday.

Zachary Bailey also is charged with four weapons-related counts. He is being held without bond at the Henry County Jail.
