Youngest Suspect Takes Plea Deal In Connection With Kinston Murders

The youngest suspect arrested in two high profile murder cases has taken a plea deal and will testify against the others awaiting trial.

Many remember the deadly days of June 2011 in Kinston when Thomas Hinton was gunned down on his bike, and U.S. Marshal Warren "Sneak" Lewis was killed trying to arrest the suspects in the Hinton murder.

The Kinston Free Press says Raekwon Bryant pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count each of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, accessory after the fact of first-degree murder and common-law robbery.

Bryant was just 14 years old last summer. The Free Press says Bryant will testify against the five other suspects in the murder cases.
