LAWMEN: Deputy Murder Suspect Throws Urine On Officer

One of the five people charged with last summer's murder of a deputy sheriff in Kinston is now facing even more charges.

Lenoir County jail officials have charged Lamont Byrd with throwing urine on a female detention officer on Saturday.

Byrd is in jail awaiting trial for the June 9th murder for Warren "Sneak" Lewis, a Nash County deputy who was assigned to the U.S. Marshal Fugitive Task Force.

Byrd is now charged with malicious conduct by a prisoner. Court records say it happened when the officer was feeding the inmates.

His bond was increased by $50,000 for the new charge.
