Murder Suspect Won't Appear In Court, Remains In Central Prison

The man behind bars in one of the most talked about crimes of 2009 will not appear in a Pitt County court Tuesday.

James Richardson was listed on the court calendar for Tuesday, but WITN News has learned that Richardson remains in Central Prison in Raleigh.

The Department of Correction says Richardson was moved to the prison January 6th from the Pitt County jail for safekeeping.

The 32 year old is charged with the June 30 murders of Landon Blackley and Andrew Kirby. They were shot dead outside the Other Place night club in Greenville.

Richardson was also charged in January of assaulting a detention center officer.

Richardson has maintained his innocence in the double murder.
