A newborn baby and the baby's two-year-old sister have been found stabbed to death in North Carolina, police said.

The bodies of four-day-old Genesis Freeman and toddler Serenity Freeman were found on Saturday near an intersection close to the city of Raeford, Hoke County sheriff Hubert Peterkin said.

Before they were found, their 30-year-old father, Tillman Freeman, was arrested and charged with two counts of child abuse and child endangerment.

Authorities said Freeman refused to cooperate with the investigation into the children's whereabouts.

They have not said who they think killed the children, who were reported missing following a domestic dispute. Freeman's wife was in a local hospital when the children disappeared.
