Man wanted for murder in Edenton turns himself in

EDENTON, NC (WVEC) -- A man wanted for murder in a North Carolina town is now in custody.

36-year-old Edward Devonne Wiggins turned himself in to authorities in Edenton on Friday morning, and is currently being held without bond.

Wiggins' arrest stems from a killing that took place on the night of Wednesday, August 23.  Police were called to the 200 block of E. Church Street just before 11:30 p.m., where officers found 51-year-old Ronald Taylor lying on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds.

They begin CPR and Taylor was taken to Vidant Chowan Hospital, where he later died. 

Following an investigation, police filed an arrest warrant for Wiggins. They believe the shooting was not random and that Wiggins and Taylor knew each other. 

No other information is available at this time.
