Two Gastonia Women Charged With Murder in Asheville

Wayne Howard

Two Gastonia women have been charged with first degree murder in the death of a three-year-old child at an Asheville motel.

Inga Janine Torrence Matthews, 50, and 29-year-old Chantarica Nasha Matthews were arrested Monday (May 2nd) after police were called for a welfare check on a child at the Rodeway Inn in West Asheville.

Police said when they went to the motel, they found the child lying dead on the floor of the motel room. They said the child appeared to have been extremely malnourished and may have starved to death, but no official cause of death was yet determined.

Both the women were incarcerated in the Buncombe County Jail under a $95,000 secured bond.
