— Guilty on all counts is the verdict that was handed down Wednesday by a Nash County jury in the trial of Dexter Harris. Harris is one of two men accused of kidnapping and killing Jodie Plew.

Also Wednesday, Donald Abercrombie became the first person in Lee County to be found guilty of murder, even though the victims' bodies were never found.

No sentencing date has been set, but prosecutors have requested the death penalty for Abercrombie.
