North Carolina parents face murder charges after child they abused 20 years ago dies

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. — The biological parents of a 22-year-old man with disabilities who died last month are now facing murder charges in connection with his death, WTVD reports.

The charges come about 20 years after 45-year-old David Raeford Tripp Jr. and 41-year-old Robyn Lynn Noffsinger served time for abusing their son, David Stewart.

Authorities say the brutal injuries Tripp and Noffsinger inflicted on David resulted in his death. He was diagnosed with battered child syndrome.
