Three teens charged in Durham bus explosion

Monday, July 28th, 2014

DURHAM, NC (AP) — Three teens have been arrested after an explosion on a city bus in Durham last week.

No one was hurt when what police called a “Draino bomb” exploded on a bus July 22.

Eighteen-year-old Demetrius Walton, 18-year-old Christopher Bobby Lewis and a 17-year-old were charged Friday after police consulted with the district attorney’s office. Each of them is charged with malicious use of an explosive device to damage property. It was not clear if they have attorneys.

The device exploded under a seat where a bottle had been left.

The bus driver and a passenger were taken to the hospital to be checked.

The fire department’s hazardous materials unit investigated the explosion.

ONLY ON 3: Deputy’s wife sues another deputy for alienation of affections

Monday, July 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff Ed McMahon demoted two deputies last month for conduct unbecoming. Because it’s personnel, the Sheriff’s Office won’t say what happened.

Today we found the wife of one of the deputies has filed an alienation of affection lawsuit against a new hanover county detective.

In the lawsuit filed last week, Cheryl Jones says New Hanover County Sheriff’s Det. Gina Turner “woo(ed) and seduce(d)” her husband Dep. Sean Jones. She claims the two had a sexual relationship, even though Turner knew Jones was married.

In another document, Turner’s husband, who lives in Michigan, said he found out Turner was in a relationship with Jones, who was her supervisor at the Sheriff’s Office.

Turner’s husband said his wife would leave their diabetic son at home up to four nights a week to stay with Sean Jones; one time leaving both of their minor children in the middle of the night Dec. 21 and not returning until the early morning hours of Dec. 23.

It’s unclear whether the lawsuit and Jones’s demotion are connected.

On top of losing rank, Jones had his hourly pay docked. A day later, Turner was also disciplined. She was suspended for 40 hours for violating the Sheriff’s Office’s policies on truthfulness and conduct unbecoming.

We reached out to Turner this afternoon for comment. She has not yet returned our calls.
