Onslow Co Jury finds woman not guilty of charges connected to husband’s shooting

File: Latasha Sutton, 2013

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – An Onslow County jury found a woman linked to the shooting of her husband not guilty of charges, according to the clerk’s office.

Jacksonville Police arrested Latasha Sutton and two others back in 2013.

A man told WNCT at the time that Sutton, the mother of his children and the men tried to kill him and take his children.

Dwayne Robinson and Juston Paul Johnson were charged with attempted first degree murder, first degree burglary, three counts of first degree kidnapping, and felony conspiracy.

Sutton was originally arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder, first degree burglary, first degree kidnapping, two counts of misdemeanor child abuse and felony conspiracy.

The Onslow County Clerk’s Office said she was only indicted on felony conspiracy and felony solicitation.

The office said the court dismissed the solicitation charge this week and a jury found her not guilty for the conspiracy charge on Thursday.

No updates yet on the legal standing for the two other suspects.
