Man Who Killed Bertie County Investigator Sentenced

A man was sentenced in Orange County court Monday to over a hundred months in prison for stabbing a Bertie County drug investigator to death last May. Officials say drug agent Thomas Lewis, who was part of a multi county drug task force for Bertie, Hertford and Gates Counties, was in Orange County near Hillsboro last May visiting friends when he got into a fight with Devin Rigsby and a group of Rigby's friends. Lawmen say Devin Rigsby stabbed Lewis at least 30 times, 20 times in his back. Rigsby is currently being held at the Orange County jail.
