In Superior Court this morning, Rowan District Attorney Bill Kenerly said he will not seek the death penalty against Chandaliea Lowder, 29, who is serving prison time after pleading guilty to attempted murder of Salisbury resident Thomas Vogt Jr. in 2005.
Lowder pleaded guilty to the attempted first-degree murder of Vogt, who was shot in the neck and left for dead in woods near Woodleaf in September 2005.
Vogt survived the shooting but was paralyzed and died in May of this year, prompting Kenerly to file new charges in the case.
Lowder’s co-defendants, Michael Joseph McDowell, 33, and Jason Ray Sullivan, 20, also had previously pleaded guilty to assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and inflicting serious injury.
Lowder, McDowell and Sullivan have served a little more than a year in their sentences.
McDowell was arraigned Monday. Neither he nor Sullivan had appeared for any similar hearings.
See Thursday’s Post for more details.
