There was no indication that Shenna Kay Riley or Jovonte Jacqus Boone had left the area, “Investigators with the sheriff’s office and the Roanoke Rapids Police Department have been patrolling the downtown area heavily in an attempt to apprehend them.”
They had been spotted at the Roanoke Avenue McDonald’s earlier this week.
Each surrendered with family within a couple of hours of one another, he said.
Tripp still declined to discuss the relationship between Riley and Boone. They were both acquainted with the victim, Nestor Salazar Moctexuma, 51, who was a year round farm worker in Halifax County.
He was found deceased last Saturday in a mobile home in the Airlie Road area of Littleton.
Tripp has not yet released how the man was killed.
Each were served with murder warrants and jailed without opportunity for bond.
