COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A man convicted in the murders of four people in 2011 will get a new trial, according to his lawyer.
Danny Thomas is serving a life sentence for the murders that happened in Columbus County in 2005.
He had been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
His attorney appealed the case, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals overturned the conviction, saying Thomas should get a new trial because one of the jurors knew a witness who testified.
