He was served an outstanding warrant for murder and was also served oustanding warrants from Halifax and Nash counties.

He has a June 3 court date on the murder charge as well as the oustanding warrant from Halifax County. He received a $750 bond for the additional warrant and a $1,070 bond for the Nash County warrant. He has a June 22 court date in Nash County.
