Suspect faces new charges in Domino's manager's beating death

— A suspect in the fatal beating of a Knightdale Domino's assistant manager was indicted this week on additional charges in the nearly 3-year-old case.

Nicho D'Angelo Bowers, 23, was initially charged in September 2010 with first-degree murder and accessory after the fact to murder in the death of Kenny Ring.

This week, he was indicted on more charges, including two counts of obstruction of justice and one count each of accessory after the fact to assault and accessory after the fact to robbery.

Ring, 24, was attacked during a Jan. 9, 2010, robbery at the Domino's Pizza store on Widewaters Parkway in Knightdale, where he worked.

He died two days later.

Another man, Travis Melton Sherman, 23, was convicted in August of first-degree murder for the crime and is serving a life sentence in prison, without the possibility of parole.

Prosecutors said during Sherman's trial that Sherman robbed the Domino's store, stealing more than $1,000, and attacked Ring while Bowers – a delivery driver and close friend to Sherman – was making the last delivery of the night.

When Bowers returned, he called 911, reporting that Ring had been attacked.

    Superior Court Judge Greg Weeks needs to go ahead and review this case now. Might save some tax dollars.
