CRESWELL, N.C. (WNCT) – The Washington County Sheriff’s Office had made an arrest in connection to the 2008 killing of Craig Swain.

The Washington County Sheriff tells 9 On Your Side deputies and agents with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation arrested Marvin Lewis of Creswell on September 18.
