Suspects In Deputy's Murder Due In Lenoir County Court

Four suspects accused in the murder of a local sheriff's deputy have an appearance in court scheduled for this morning.

Lamont Byrd, Maretto Byrd, Devine Slade and Kion Dail are scheduled to appear in Lenoir County Court today. They face first-degree murder charges for the June murder of Nash County Deputy Warren "Sneak" Lewis in Kinston. Lewis was working as a U.S. Marshal to arrest suspects in the murder of Thomas Hinton when he was killed. Dail, Lamont Byrd, and an unnamed juvenile also face charges for Hinton's murder.

Dail's mother was arrested this week for accessory after the fact of murder.

The last two times the suspects were to appear, their case was continued. We'll let you know what happens today.

    A public hanging on the courthouse square Saturday morning is the best they deserve.

    How many more times are these wanna be gange member punks going to have this case continued? I am sure Officer Lewis would have liked to put off the day this group of garbage shot and killed him. Justice should be swift and to the point in this case. They did the crime let these thugs get what they deserve, A nice lethal injection!

    Thanks to Perdue's support of the Racial Justice Act, even if convicted and sentenced to death, they can claim racism and remain alive. Wish they had given the deputy the same opportunity. Perdue is such a crock of ....

        Perdue won't be around next term, maybe someone with a sense of morals will be in charge next go round.
