13-year-old double homicide suspect escapes custody


LUMBERTON, N.C. (AP) – Authorities say a 13-year-old suspect in a double homicide has escaped from a courthouse in eastern North Carolina.

The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday the teenager escaped from Juvenile Court around noon Tuesday.

He was last seen in a white T-shirt and beige pants, wearing leg restraints without shoes.

The boy is described as having brown eyes and brown hair, standing about 5 feet tall and weighing about 110 pounds.

He and a 19-year-old codefendant, Derrick Deshawn Hunt, are charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of two brothers found dead inside a home last month.
