Pitt County Murder Trial Underway

The murder trial of a local man accused of riding his bicycle to go and shoot and kill a man is now underway in Pitt County Superior Court.

The year-and-a-half old murder sparked an outcry in the community. Residents marched in the streets near Imperial Circle where 25 year-old Kenneth Andrews lost his life that day back in 2007.

Shadeek Pittman, 26 years-old, faces first degree murder charges in Andrews death. Assistant D.A. Tonya Oliver called two Greenville Police officers to the stand. They recalled the evidence they found the day of the murder. Pittman held his head down as officer Paula Sauls with the Greenville Police department described finding Andrews' body with the upper portion of his chest and head up against the side of the bed, but the remainder of his body was on the floor.

If convicted, Pittman could face life in prison.

    A man can go get a restraining order if he wants to protect his self or son. Leave the situation, don't make it worse or escalate it...
