— Edgecombe County authorities on Friday charged a Rocky Mount man with murder – two weeks after Nash County authorities charged him in a separate homicide.

The latest charge against Te'von Lamont Mabry, 18, of 523 Washington St., involves the Oct. 20 shooting death of 29-year-old Tavon Dionte Clark in Princeville.

Mabry was already in the Nash County jail without bond after being charged Nov. 6 with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old Lavontae Brown, a freshman at Rocky Mount High School.

Michael Antoine Lyons Jr., 19, of Rocky Mount, also was charged in Brown's death, while J’Von Charmorris Coley, 21, of Pinetops, has been charged in Clark's shooting.

    Until these young men have some order and discipline in their lives the apparent total disrespect for human life will continue. This type of societal disintegration does not just happen. It is planned and orchestrated to move the population toward a more totalitarian form of government where government has total control over our lives. The nation better wake up fast.

    Why are there no protests? Why are the Revs not coming? Why are there no riots and looting and burning down of local businesses? Is it because these 2 black people were murdered by another black dude? That is the only conclusion to come to. When will the black community catch on, that they are being played?

    He was just 'regulating.'

    No key, just a rope and a short drop while his feet dangle and twitch...and bring in the DOT backhoe, with no marker, just a number. Not worthy of our air, or out compassion, or care.

    Apparently, you haven't mastered the art of reading comprehension. The murder in Princeville, did not catch up with Mr. Mabry, until AFTER he was jailed for the Nov 6th murder. He was able to commit this second murder, because he WAS NOT in jail. He had NOT been charged with any murder, until AFTER Nov 6th. Today, the murder in Princeville caught up with him. Do you understand it all now?

    Te'von, Lavontae, and J'Von. Are these names real life?

    Is Mr. Mabry a Syrian refugee? Nope, he's just a good ol' homegrown American punk. Protect us, Pat.
