Two Men Admit To Roles In Double Murder

Two men have pleaded guilty for their part in a double murder in Jacksonville that happened just over a year ago.

This morning Jondre Lowemincey pleaded guilty to two counts of first degree murder in Onslow County Superior Court and received two consecutive life sentences. Prosecutors say he made the plea to avoid the possibility of the death penalty.

Lowemincey admitted to killing Lance Corporal Jordan Barrow and Lance Corporal Amanda Carrithers after breaking into their house on East Drive in Jacksonville.

Prosecutors say just hours before the murders Carrithers had told Lowemincey she was pregnant and he was not the father. They say Lowemincey was the trigger man in the two murders.

Late this afternoon Tharon Johnson, also charged in the case, took a guilty plea on two counts of second degree murder. He was given a sentence of 250-318 months in prison.

    I don't think I totally agree with their sentencing. It seems to be way too harsh. I don't'd think they be eligible for parole in like 20 years at least.
