A possible cult leader in North Carolina is accused of shooting to death his 4-year-old stepson because he believed he was gay.
Peter Lucas Moses, 27, may face the death penalty if he's found guilty of the murder of Jadon Higganbothan; Moses is also being charged with the killing of Antoinetta Yvonne McKoy, a 28-year-old woman. Moses was a religious extremist who found homosexuality an abomination and believed the young boy was gay. Moses lived in a one-room home with three women and nine children; it's believed McKoy was killed because she tried to escape from the house.
The deaths of Higganbothan and McKoy came to the attention of North Carolina authorities after another one of the women living with Moses escaped and told them two deaths occurred at the crowded home. According to the witness, the other women were complicit in the deaths of Higganbothan and McKoy, whose remains were found in June. Higganbothan's mother, 25-year-old Vania Rae Sisk, was living at the house and is being charged in connection with his death.
