Three Charged in Eagle Springs Murder
Moore County Sheriff's Office investigators arrested three men Thursday in connection with the murder of an Eagle Springs man in February.
Claudis Antonio Barrett, 29, was found lying in the front yard of his home Feb. 3 by deputies responding to reports of a shooting.
Deputies responded to a 911 call about 7:40 p.m. at 2753 N.C. 211. Barrett had been shot several times. Moore County EMS took Barrett to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead from gunshot wounds, according to the Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff's Office released few details at the time but offered a reward.
At the time, at least one person had been with the victim at Barrett's house. A conversation in the yard was followed by shots being fired, Chief Deputy Neil Godfrey said at the time. More than one other person may have been at the house. At least one person left on foot, but a car might have been nearby, he said.
During the investigation, evidence led Moore County investigators to arrest Phillip Brian Chisholm, 31, of Robbins. Chisholm was charged with one count of murder, one count of felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana.
Chisholm is being held without bond in the Moore County Detention Center pending a court appearance April 22 in Moore County District Court, according to Sheriff Lane Carter.
After additional investigation, deputies went to the Asheboro area and arrested Robert Anthony Boone. They charged Boone, 28, with one count of murder and one count of felony robbery with a dangerous weapon.
He is currently being held without bond in the detention center pending his first court appearance on April 22, 2010.
Sheriff's investigators also arrested Bruce O'Neal Jarrell, 19, of Asheboro, and charged him with one count of murder and one count of felony robbery with a dangerous weapon.
He was jailed without bond and is also scheduled to appear in District Court on April 22.
Deputies from the Randolph County Sheriff's Office and officers from the Asheboro Police Department assisted with the arrests, Carter said.
The case was handled entirely by law enforcement with no reward having to be paid, according to the Sheriff's Office.
No other details were released.
