Grand jury to hear triple murder case
The case of a Hickory man who authorities say killed three people in a Catawba County trailer park will go before a grand jury.
Sheriff's officials arrested 32-year-old Everett Hewitt last month following a manhunt that involved 100 officers from several area law enforcement agencies.
Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid said Hewitt is being held at the Catawba County Detention Center on three counts of murder pending Monday's grand jury hearing. A public defender has been appointed.
The grand jury will consider indictments against Hewitt for the shooting deaths of 50-year-old Wade Sigmon, 42-year-old Susan Blevins, and 51-year old Connie Miller, and for injuring 38-year-old Joseph Burke.
All were attacked about 4:30 a.m. March 15 at Oak Knoll Mobile Home park near Conover.
