Father of collapse victim faces charges

Posted: Updated:

The North Carolina father who was working in a two-story-deep hole that collapsed killing his daughter and her cousin is facing drug and firearms charges.
    
The Lincoln County sheriff's department says 31-year-old Jordan Arwood of Stanley is charged with possession of a gun by a felon, and making a controlled substance.
    
He's being held in the county jail on $20,000 bond.
    
Arwood was operating a backhoe in a pit last week when the walls caved in on the children. The bodies of the two young cousins, 6-year-old Chloe Jade Arwood and 7-year-old James Levi Caldwell, were dug out the next day.
    
While investigating the accident, sheriff's deputies removed guns and a marijuana plant from Arwood's home.
