Wife Charged in Connection With Husband's Slaying in Cumberland County

Posted July 3, 2007

— Sheriff's deputies in Cumberland County on Tuesday charged a Fayetteville woman in connection with her husband's murder last month.

Lisa Marie Hunter, 30, became the second person charged in the death of Ronald L. Hunter, 41, of Wade. A railroad worker found his body off I-295 near Rich Walker Road on June 25.

Hunter was charged with being an accessory after the fact, deputies said. She was free on a $30,000 unsecured bond and was to appear in court on Thursday, officials said.

Travis Kinton, 19, turned himself in on July 1 and was charged with murder. Investigators said he was a friend of the Hunters.

The sheriff's office labeled Hunter's death a murder after an autopsy , but they have not disclosed the cause of death.

    Winthro - You said a mouthful then! The great court system's hard at work!

    What I don't understand is the unsecure bond for accessory to murder. Again, ya gotta love the court system.

    Let me guess......love triangle with an 18-year old???? LOL

    I guess a DIVORCE was too expensive maybe.....people just don't think or plan for the long run. Leaving is always the best option...if you can't live with 'em, leave 'em ! ! ! !
