Morgan Man Charged In Crash That Killed His Son

A Morgan County man is facing charges in the death of a child in a one-vehicle crash over the weekend.

The Highway Patrol says 40 year old Larry Lunnin of Rocky Mount ran his jeep off Route W, struck a sign and overturned.

His three year-old son died in the crash.

Lunnin faces charges of second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, failing to secure a child in a child restraint, and two counts of of child abduction, for not turning his children over to his wife, when he lost custody of them in March.
