SALISBURY — A Salisbury man will serve no jail time after he pleaded guilty Thursday to accessory after the fact of voluntary manslaughter in the 2006 beating/shooting death of a man behind Salisbury High.
Titus Delaney Vinson, now 26, received 36 months supervised probation after accepting a plea agreement.
Vinson and eight others were initially charged with being involved in the death of Anthony McFadden, who was beaten, then shot several times in the 700 block of Wilson Road, which is off Lincolnton Road.
Superior Court Judge Kevin Bridges also sentenced Vinson to six months of intensive probation, 50 hours of community service, submit a DNA sample, submit to warrantless searches and not use or possess illegal or controlled substances. He is also ordered to pay $500 in fines, $385 in court costs and $735 for court appointed attorney fees.
He is also to have no contact with the victim’s family or co-defendants in the case.
McFadden lived in an apartment on Wilson Road, not far from where he was killed.
Police arrested the nine people, including a juvenile, over a five-month period. Those charged have either served their time, had charges dismissed or have pending cases.
• Bryce Eugene Stokes, now 22, was initially charged with accessory after the fact, but charges were later dismissed.
Court records said he was a witness, not a participant.
Stokes has since been charged, in January 2007, with felony common law robbery. That charge was dismissed in June. He was found guilty in June of misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury. He received two years supervised probation.
• Adrian Bennett Neely, now 25, was charged with accessory after the fact of murder. The charges were dismissed in May 2010. • Tyrone Dejonas Vinson, now 30, is the brother of Titus Vinson and was charged with murder. He pleaded guilty in March 2008 to felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He was released in May 2010 after serving less than three years.
• James Calvin Morton III, now 28, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in March 2008. He was originally charged with first-degree murder. Morton is currently in prison. He is slated to be released in September 2012.
• Samuel Alford Poole Jr., now 37, charged with being an accessory after the fact and is awaiting trial. A murder charge against Poole was dismissed because he was indicted as an accessory, court records said.
Poole is expected in court next week in an unrelated matter involving misdemeanor larceny and driving infractions.
• William Isaac Sanders, now 28, was initially charged with murder. Those charges were dismissed because it was determined he was not present at the time of the murder, court records show.
He has since been charged in October 2008 with marijuana possession in an unrelated incident and is awaiting trial for that matter.
He was indicted in July with beating a man in April at the Economy Inn on Bendix Drive.
• Antoine Terrell McGee, 24, was initially charged with murder. He pleaded in February 2008 to felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He received credit for time served in jail for a near-three year sentence.
