FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Baseball petition comes up 14 signatures short; City will allow additional petitions to be entered

Friday, June 8th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — After reviewing all 3,903 signatures on a petition trying to stop tax payer money going toward a new ballpark in town, The New Hanover County Board of Elections says the group came up short… 14 signatures short, to be exact.

2,828 signatures were verified by the Board of Elections, just missing the mark at 2,842 needed to move the ordinance forward. New Hanover County Board of Elections Director Marvin McFadyen says the next move is up to the city.

City Attorney Bill Wolak says Wilmington will allow additional petitions to be entered for consideration. Wolak says there is no time limit for the petitions and once they are returned to the city clerk, the signatures will be turned into the Board of Elections for further analysis.

NC man says girlfriend set self on fire, shot herself

Friday, June 8th, 2012

GREENVILLE, NC (AP) — A Pitt County man charged with murder says his girlfriend set herself on fire before shooting herself in the head.

The Greenville Daily Reflector reports that state investigators testified in Superior Court on Thursday that the charred remains of 51-year-old Teresea Derr Foster contained gasoline.

Foster’s body was found in 2009 behind a home she shared with her 57-year-old fiancĂ© Clinton Arthur Ridenour north of Greenville. A sheriff’s detective says a red gasoline can was found on the couple’s front porch swing.

Ridenour is charged with the first-degree murder and faces life in prison without parole if he is convicted. Ridenour maintains his innocence and says Foster’s fatal injuries were self-inflicted.
