Authorities discovered the bodies of 2-year-old Serenity Freeman and 4-day-old Genesis Freeman at about 2 a.m. inside a vehicle off the side of the road near the intersection of N.C. Highway 211 and Army Road.

The children-2-year-old Serenity and 4-day-old Genesis-were reported missing Friday following a fight between Freeman and his wife.

Deputies say the girls were found off of NC Highway 211 and Army Road in Raeford and were stabbed to death.

A toddler and an infant who were reported missing and endangered in North Carolina have been found stabbed to death, authorities said.

Freeman was then subsequently charged with the murder counts, the Hoke County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The threats forced the evacuation of many JCCs, including some with day care and school facilities for infants and young children. Jewish groups commended law enforcement for the arrest and said the calls still spoke to a spike in anti-Semitism.

The children had been stabbed multiple times with what appears to be a hunting or survivalist-type knife, he said. I don't care how many years you've been in it.

"From what our investigation's telling us they had a dispute, where (Freeman) allegedly made accusations about the babies not being his, a child not being his or maybe her involvement with someone, and when he took the kids we understand he left in a rage."
He said that everybody was taking the deaths of the two young girls "real hard".

Freeman was arrested Friday and initially charged with child abuse, and child endangerment after employees at a doctor's office called the police to report a man acting suspiciously outside the building.

After the bodies were discovered Saturday, Freeman was charged with two additional counts of first-degree murder. "Our heart goes out to the family, to the mother". Freeman, who a relative calls an "abuser", told police he believes his wife was seeing another man and that one or both of the children weren't actually his. It is not known if he has entered a plea.
