A Caldwell County woman has been charged with murder in connection with the Thursday afternoon shooting of a man at her home just outside of Lenoir, according to the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office.

Nancy Benge Austin, 57, of 1122 Tara Place, is being held without bond at the Caldwell County Detention Center. Her first court appearance is set for Monday, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The victim has been identified as Dylan Joseph Short, 20, of Hudson.

Investigators said they were not releasing details of how the two were connected, until after more evidence has been gathered. However, the victim was reportedly involved with the suspect’s daughter, according to a family friend.

“This is a tragic event and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s family. This was a young man just beginning his life and it has been taken away from him,” Sheriff Alan Jones said in a statement.
