An independent analysis of disputed evidence in a Pitt County fatal shooting case confirms the analysis of an SBI examiner.
Jemaul Green is one of several people who were charged in the 2005 shooting death of a 10-year-old Ayden boy. Christopher Foggs was caught in the crossfire of an argument as he played in his front yard. Green was convicted in 2006 and sentenced to more than 23 years behind bars. Vonzeil Adams was also convicted in the case in April 2010, of voluntary manslaughter and other charges.
Pitt County District Attorney Clark Everett asked for the independent review of the analysis in the Greene case following questions about whether all the bullets could have come from the same gun.
The review was done by the former Chief of the Firearms and Tool Mark Unit of the FBI Forensic Laboratory and confirms the SBI analysis.
"The results of this independent examination fully support our position in this matter and I hope this will bring some closure for the family of Christopher Foggs. There was only one shooter in this case and he was rightfully convicted and is serving the sentence that he justly deserves," District Attorney Clark Everett said.
