And the style is ...?

A Charlotte mother who is a suspect in 15 Dilworth fires called 911 in late April to report a suspicious person walking in her neighborhood, a 911 recording shows.

A Charlotte woman admitted Thursday to stealing another woman's identity and using it to buy a Lincoln Continental.

So ... under what circumstances would a crime suspect be a "Charlotte father"? (Yeah, yeah, yeah. He or she would have to start by being a guy. We're looking at a slightly different social function of language here, please.)

(While we're here: These items seem to be credited to the same writer, but one's undated and the other is dated "Columbia." Are reporters piling up that much driving time, or are Some Newspapers playing fast and loose with datelines again?)
