FIRST ON 3: Murder suspect charged with throwing urine on jail guard
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington teen in jail on a murder charge is in more trouble after allegedly throwing urine on a jail guard.
Shelby Lentz is charged with second-degree murder in the January death of Martin Yakimovich, though Lentz says he acted in self defense. He’s been in jail ever since under $500,000 bond awaiting trial.
New Hanover County Sheriff’s Spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer says last week officers at the New Hanover County Jail were putting Lentz in lockdown and giving him an orange scrub top after a disciplinary issue when they say he threw urine at one of them.
Lentz is now charged with malicious conduct by a prisoner, which is a felony. Brewer says Lentz automatically went from the jail’s General Housing Unit to the Disciplinary Housing Unit for 45 days. That means Lentz will stay in a cell by himself and only be allowed out once every three days.
