Police: Suspect in NC killings knew 1 victim

Monday, November 28th, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — Fayetteville police say a violent confrontation that left three people dead and two others wounded did not happen during a break-in.

A statement from police Monday said the suspect in the killings knew at least one of the victims, and was familiar with the home.

Shawn Lee Legrand, 44, will face three charges of first-degree murder when he’s released from a local hospital. He’s being treated for wounds suffered when two police officers shot him Saturday after responding to a 911 call.

Police initially thought the attack started as a break-in, but they now say Legrand went to the home to confront someone and then shot or stabbed the others.

State Correction Department records show Legrand spent 23 years in prison for violent crimes before his release in July.

Ex-NC high court justice Orr joins law firm

Monday, November 28th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A former North Carolina Supreme Court justice and 2008 Republican candidate for governor is heading to a
well-known law firm in the state after leaving a conservative-leaning legal group earlier this month.

The Poyner Spruill firm announced Monday that Bob Orr would join its Raleigh office, practicing in general litigation and advocating on legislative and regulatory matters.

The 65-year-old Orr left the Supreme Court in 2004 and became the founding executive director of the North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law, which challenged in court taxpayer-funded incentives and other matters. He left briefly to run unsuccessfully for the GOP gubernatorial nomination.

Orr is also a former judge on the state Court of Appeals.
