Stephen Stone is charged with two counts of Capital Murder and is back in Madison County. He was arrested in Leeds, Alabama in connection with the murder of his wife, Krista Stone and son 7-year-old Zachery Stone.
Their bodies were discovered Sunday morning after Huntsville Police conducted a welfare check at the home on Chicamauga Trail.
The quiet neighborhood off South Memorial Parkway was abuzz Sunday with the news.
"A neighbor from down the street called and said 'Yeah it's right behind our house,.' And I'm like, oh my, you can look out the patio door and see. It's that close," said neighbor Kathy Workman.
Workman says people in the neighborhood are simply in shock. "I don't ever lock my doors. I will now," she says.
