Cops hunt suspect accused of killing son, explaining in Facebook video why he shot wife

(FOX NEWS) North Carolina authorities are searching for a man who they say shot and killed his 15-year-old son and later used Facebook to admit to shooting and critically wounding his ex-wife.

Norlina Police Chief Taylor Bartholomew said Earl Valentine kicked in the door to his ex-wife's Warren County home Tuesday and shot her before killing his son. The chief said he later talked to Valentine on the phone and described him as "cold and callous" and showing no remorse for the shootings.

Bartholomew also confirmed that Valentine posted a video on his Facebook page admitting to his ex-wife's shooting.

"She lied on me, had warrants taken out on me. She drug me all the way down to nothing," Valentine said on the video. "I loved my wife, but she deserved what she had coming."
