Bladen man heads to prison after attempted murder guilty plea

Monday, April 28th, 2014

BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Bladen County man will spend at least 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted first-degree murder, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Curtis Levi Moore admitted earlier this month to shooting at a Bladenboro woman who came home Jan. 18, 2012, to find Moore and another man leaving her house after breaking in. The woman was shot twice in her right side.

A judge sentenced Moore to between 10 years four months and 13 years five months for the crime.

Moore’s co-defendant Elijah McCutchen has pleaded guilty to felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He is in jail awaiting his sentencing next week, prosecutors say.

Wanted man charged with breaking into cars

Monday, April 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man wanted on multiple outstanding warrants is in jail after police say he broke into several cars in downtown Wilmington over the weekend.

Police responded to 105 N. Water St. just after 1:30 a.m. Saturday for a call about a man pulling door handles on parked cars near the Water St. Parking Deck and the Hilton, WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley said. Police found Michael Jason Walters, 27, who they say appears to have broken into several cars on Water Street starting near The George several blocks south.

Officers charged Walters with breaking and entering motor vehicles, tampering with motor vehicles and carrying a concealed weapon after police found a pellet gun in his backpack.

Police also found there were outstanding warrants for Walters from Alabama for charges of armed robbery and dangerous drugs. There was also a New Hanover County warrant for two counts of breaking into motor vehicles and possession of heroin.

Walter is in jail under $500,100 bond.

The NC Department of Corrections website shows Walters has convictions for breaking into cars and drug possession.
