Nathaniel White-Young, 30, now faces two counts of murder, according to an affidavit in Kingsport General Sessions Court. Records state that Melissa Mingle, 37, was “with unborn child” when she died in the hospital on Monday. That was one day after she was found unconscious on the front lawn of her home on Fordtown Road.
A Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office incident report states that neighbors spotted Mingle and called 911. Court records state that responding officers observed a fire inside the residence. Our partners at the Kingsport Times News have more.
