Murder victim's family talks nearly 11 years later

By Kristen Hunter

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – On June 30th 2001, 23-year-old Ginger Hayes and her husband, Jeremy, made a stop at the CVS on Memorial Drive in Greenville. It was a stop they'd never forget.

While Jeremy went inside, Ginger and their 11-month-old son were abducted from the parking lot. Her body was later found in a field in Nash County. She had been repeatedly beaten and raped.

11-month-old Nicholas was found next to her body. He survived nearly 10 hours in the sun.

Debbie Malinchalk says not a day goes by where she doesn’t think about what her daughter-in-law and grandson had to go through.

"It was the longest day of my life and watching my son go through what he did was just something you never forget,” she said.

Malinchalk and her son, Jeremy, were in Greenville today to talk about the tragic event and to honor other victims of crime during a special ceremony at the Pitt County Courthouse.

Andre Edwards was found guilty of first degree murder, rape and kidnapping. He is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
