One Arressted Over Rocky Mount Murders

The suspect, Antwan Maurice Pittman

Deputies have charged a Rocky Mount man with the murder of one of six women found slain in Edgecombe County over the past four years.

Antwan Maurice Pittman, 31, is accused of killing Taraha Shenice Nicholson, 28. Her body was discovered in March near Marriott Road. The medical examiner said she’d most likely been strangled.

Pittman has a criminal record. According to the North Carolina sex offender registry, he was convicted in 1994 of taking indecent liberties with a 2-year-old. He was released from prison in April 1997.

Deputies say he’s been in the Nash County Jail since mid August on charges of driving with a revoked license and failing to register as a sex offender.

This dirt bag needs to be thrown into jail and left.
