LENOIR, N.C. -- The District Attorney's Office announced Tuesday a conviction and sentencing for a man charged in connection with a 2012 double shooting in Lenoir.

Justin Marquis Caldwell, 26, of Lenoir, was convicted of two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Caldwell was sentenced to serve a minimum of 35 months in the North Carolina Division of Adult Correction.

Authorities say Caldwell shot a man and a woman and fled the scene on Spainhour Street one evening in early April 2012.

Two other suspects were arrested in connection with the shooting: Kasey Danielle McGhinnis and Stephanie Nicole Laws. Both were charged with accessory after the fact.

Police arrested three people accused in a double shooting in Lenoir on Sunday evening.

At the time, investigators said they were able to determine a verbal confrontation had led to the shooting, and were able to stop a vehicle with all three suspects in it a few blocks from where the incident took place.
