Tim Hennis will stand trial in a Fort Bragg courtroom early next year, a judge ruled this week. Hennis’ trial is scheduled to begin February 22nd. Hennis’ next court date will be a hearing in August at which the court will decide whether the testimony of two alleged eyewitnesses is reliable enough to be heard by a jury.
Yesterday, a Robeson County jury convicted Myron Britt of shooting his wife in 2003. Today, they listened as Britt’s sobbing children begged them to spare their father’s life. Tomorrow, they will hear closing arguments and begin to deliberate whether Myron Britt should receive life without the possibility of parole or the death penalty.
