NORTH TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WECT) – A woman has been charged with murder following a double stabbing that happened on N. Topsail Beach back in July.

Bekka Shellhammer, 19, was arrested for murder in connection to the stabbing. The bodies of Robert Shellhammer IV and Christopher Stewart were found on N. Topsail Beach, each suffering from fatal stabbing wounds.

According to WITN, authorities originally said it was believed that Robert Shellhammer IV and Christopher Stewart had stabbed each other.

Onslow County Sheriff's Detectives arrested Shallhammer at her home in Sneads Ferry Tuesday afternoon. She has been charged with murder after District Attorneys felt evidence "clearly indicated sufficient grounds for a charge of murder."

A medical examiner's report says both men died after being stabbed in the neck.

Shellhammer is being held without bond and will face a judge Wednesday morning.

No other information has been released at this time, but stay with WECT for updates as they become available.
