FIRST ON 3: Assault leaves Bladen County landlord in critical condition; suspect wanted

Monday, April 30th, 2012

CLARKTON, NC (WWAY) — An argument between a landlord and tenant ended with one person in the hospital and another on the run.

Around 10:15 Saturday morning, 71-year old Robert Allen Gooden went to 209 W. Hester Street in Clarkton. 23-year-old Shawn Faulk was there. Gooden had previously evicted Faulk from a home a few doors down.

Deputies say Gooden and Faulk began arguing and that’s when Faulk began hitting Gooden in the face with his fists. A witness pulled Faulk off.

EMS took Gooden to the hospital where he remains in critical condition.

A felony warrant for Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Bodily Injury has been issued for Faulk.

If anyone knows where Faulk is, they are asked to call the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 862-8141.

Aide’s wife says Edwards knew about money

Monday, April 30th, 2012

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — The wife of a key former aide to John Edwards says the presidential candidate told her it was legal to deposit money from a wealthy donor in order to take care of Edwards’ mistress.

Cheri Young testified in Edwards’ trial on federal campaign finance charges. She said she deposited money from the donor into a bank account she held jointly with her husband, Andrew Young.

Cheri Young said she had doubts about the money and insisted that Edwards himself tell her it was legal under campaign finance laws. She said Edwards told her in a phone call that campaign lawyers said depositing the money was legal.

Prosecutors say Edwards deliberately used donations to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008. Edwards denies the charges.
