Johnston Investigators Believe Debt Was Motive Behind Shooting

Posted Updated

JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. — Investigators now say a debt may be the reason a man was shot to death in Wilson Mills.

Sean Castorina is charged with killing his former co-worker, Sean Nichols.

Investigators are looking into reports that Castorina told an acquaintance he was going to shoot Nichols unless he paid him $1,200 for a job he'd done.

Johnston County authorities found Nichols' body in a wooded area between Selma and Pine Level.
