Two Families Struggle

Good article here on the difficulties faced by the families of the victim and the family of convicted killer Edwardo Wong. Wong's mothers issued a tearful apology to the victim's wife, Cindy Swan.

Wong's case is currently in sentencing and a jury will soon determine whether he will die by natural causes in prison or by a needle.

Four other capital trials are on-going in the state:

Stephen Buckner in McDowell County (in trial)
Albert Ramos in Scotland County (in jury selection)
Anthony Pinkston in Robeson County (in jury selection)
Timothy Hartford in Forsyth County (in jury selection)

Earlier this month, Dexter McRae was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole at the end of his capital trial in Cumberland County.
