HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A Hendersonville man was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated assault after he was accused of killing to women during an argument.
On Monday, around 3:30 p.m., the Hendersonville Police Department received a call of shots fired in the 100 block of Cavalier Drive.
