A Greenville man, accused of gunning down a former East Carolina University student last year, was in a Pitt County courtroom this morning.
Phillip Lewis is charged with last August's murder of Tommy Falcone. Falcone's body was found at Pirate's Cove Apartments on East 10th Street and authorities say the shooting followed a dispute between two groups of college-age men.
Lewis is out on $500,000 bond and today his case was continued until June 27th for an administrative hearing.
The man's attorney said last year that the shooting happened after Lewis had been threatened and his truck damaged by a friend of Falcone.
