A woman indicted for the murder of a Greenville woman who was shot in her car is now out on bond.
Officials at the Pitt County Detention Center say Allysia Parker posted a $1 million bond and left the jail Tuesday evening.
Parker was indicted in September for the August 17 murder of Ciera Clark in Greenville. Witnesses say they saw two vehicles stopped in the travel lanes near the intersection, shots were heard, and one of the vehicles drove away. According to police, the remaining vehicle, driven by 26-year-old Ciera Clark, drove across the intersection and struck a pedestrian crosswalk signal pole at the northeast corner of the intersection of 14th and Tyson Streets.
20-year-old Daitrieyuaon Parker and 24-year-old Timothy Reaves are also charged with Clark's murder. They are both still in the jail.
Police had previously charged 21-year-old Allysia Parker, 20-year-old Daitrieyuaon Parker and 24-year-old Timothy Reaves with murder in the death of Ciera Clark.
A Pitt County grand jury has indicted them on the same charges.
The indictment says the defendants "unlawfully, willfully and feloniously and of malice and forethought did kill and murder Ciera Michelle Clark."
Clark was shot in her car at the intersection of 14th and Tyson Streets in Greenville in the early morning hours of August 17th by someone in another car.
Family and friends of Clark, along with other community members, honored her memory at a vigil last month.
Community tips helped lead to the arrests.
The three are due in court next month.
Three people charged with the murder of a Pitt Community College graduate went before a Pitt County judge this morning.
21-year-old Allysia Parker, 20-year-old Daitrieyuaon Parker and 24-year-old Timothy Reaves were arrested last night by Greenville police.
All are charged with the murder of Ciera Clark and are being held without bond.
Reaves faces seven additional charges of failing to appear for other criminal charges.
Clark was shot in her car at the intersection of 14th and Tyson Streets in Greenville early Saturday morning by someone in another car.
Family and friends of Clark, along with other community members, honored her memory at a vigil Wednesday night. Some also pleaded for an end to the violence in the community.
At a noon news conference, Chief Hassan Aden thanked the community for working with them to help solve this murder. "I want to thank everyone who came forward and I'm hoping this is the new way we work, moving forward," said the chief.
The victim's mother, Mary Clark says she was told of the arrests last night. The woman said after the news conference that young people need to be doing something constructive, not destructive. "Get a job like everyone else," she said. "You all need to put down the guns and pick up a book."
Clark said she was close friends with Daitrieyuaon Parker's father. She said two families than know each other have been torn apart.
Mary Clark said so far Parker's father has not contacted her. "I wish he would," she said.
The family of a woman who died after being shot at a Greenville intersection is talking about the heart breaking loss.
Mary Clark says that her daughter, 26-year-old Ciera Clark, was a determined woman who was pushing to make something of herself.
“She wasn't out here in the streets, she didn't drink she didn't smoke, she didn't curse, and she was a very loving person, and she cared about people,” said Clark.
The woman had attended Pitt Community College, graduating in 2012.
Stuffed animals, balloons, and a poster sized image of Clark now mark a makeshift memorial at the intersection of 14th and Tyson Streets where police say the deadly shooting happened just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday.
Mary Clark is urging those responsible to turn themselves in, saying it’s only a matter of time.
“That was a cowardly act right there and you use a gun on a female, young female at that, very pretty, emotional female that was going for everything that she wanted to be in life,” said Clark.
Police in the east are investigating the shooting of a woman inside her vehicle, who later died at the hospital.
Greenville Police say the gunfire happened at the intersection of West 14th Street and Tyson Street around 3:29 Saturday morning.

According to police, the remaining vehicle, driven by 26-year-old Ciera Clark, drove across the intersection and struck a pedestrian crosswalk signal pole at the northeast corner of the intersection.
Clark was taken to Vidant Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead for an apparent gunshot wound.
