Charlotte officer’s lawyers try to stop prosecutor

Monday, January 27th, 2014

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — The North Carolina attorney general’s office is going back to a grand jury in an attempt to indict a Charlotte police officer accused of shooting an unarmed man last year.

Attorney General Roy Cooper say prosecutors will resubmit the case against officer Randall Kerrick on Monday. But Kerrick’s attorneys have asked a judge to stop their effort, saying state law prevents prosecutors from resubmitting the case.

A Mecklenburg County grand jury last week refused to indict Kerrick on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, asking prosecutors to seek a lesser charge.

Investigators say Kerrick shot 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell on Sept. 14. The former Florida A&M football player wrecked his car and went to a nearby house and banged on the door, apparently for help. The resident called police.

Winter Storm Warning in effect for all of Southeastern NC starting Tuesday

Monday, January 27th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for all of Southeastern NC beginning Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday evening.

A pleasant weekend with temperatures in the 50s will precede an even warmer Monday with highs in the 60s. But an Arctic cold front approaches from the west, and that will change our weather dramatically come Tuesday and Wednesday.

Lots of cold air will be in place in the wake of the Arctic cold front right as it stalls offshore. Waves of low pressure will ride up this front like cars on a highway. That means a lot of moisture will be available starting Tuesday afternoon. With cold air already in place, precipitation will likely fall as snow and possibly sleet in southeastern North Carolina beginning Tuesday afternoon and lingering into Wednesday night.

Accumulation of at least three inches is possible at this point. Bridges may become icy and dangerous, because those surfaces will cool much faster than the ground.

Stay with WWAY and the StormTrack 3 Weather Team for continuing developments and forecasts as the system approaches.
