From our source we read:
District Attorney Scott Thomas announced Thursday that 23-year-old Titus Dawson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of 46-year-old Jeff Joyner in 2012. Dawson was also convicted of armed robbery, first-degree burglary, and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.Source ►
Dawson was sentenced to between 21 to 28 years in prison. In court Wednesday, Dawson apologized to Joyner's three sisters.
"He admitted to the shooting," said Betty Powers, one of Joyner's sisters. "I think he was really sincere. I think, in my heart; I don't think he really intentionally did it. He said he was running and shooting back."
In addition, Dawson's co-conspirators, 21-year-old Dwayne Evans, 24-year-old Christopher Bryan, and 24-year-old Kevin Henderson pleaded guilty to ransacking and robbing Joyner's home. They each received a sentence of between 12 to 16 years in prison.
The convictions were reported May 22, 2014. The murder took place in New Bern, North Carolina.
