WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - WECT has obtained a copy of the medical examiner's report for the murder of Carol Ann Johnson, and it outlines a brutal scene.

Johnson was found dead on her kitchen floor at her home on Pine Valley Drive on July 4, 2011.  A bathrobe soaked in blood lay at her feet.

According to the official report from the state's Chief Medical Examiner, Johnson died of blood loss from multiple stab wounds. An autopsy revealed a total of nine stab wounds to the neck, back, and chest.
