GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A man accused of a quadruple murder in Greenville was back in court Thursday.

Dibon Toone went before a judge where he was appointed a second attorney now that his case is a capital case.

Toone has been charged with killing Garlette Howard and her three daughters.

A Rule 24 hearing, which is a hearing before a judge in first-degree murder cases to determine whether the state will seek the death penalty, was also ordered.

The state is also alleging aggravating circumstances.

Those circumstances will not be made clear until trial.
