A man was arrested and charged with murder after his stepson was shot and killed Tuesday night, according to the Wise County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a home in the 100 block of Griffin Street, south of Boyd, at around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday about a domestic disturbance between the suspect, Joshua Earwood, and his 18-year-old stepson, Caleb White.

Earwood shot White, who was transported to a hospital where he died of his injuries, authorities said.
Earwood was arrested and is charged with murder. He’s in the Wise County Jail with bail set at $350,000, records show
