LUMBERTON — A 29-year-old Fayetteville man has pleaded guilty to the 2012 murder and attempted robbery of a Parkton man.
Dustin Fields, of Sigman Street, on Aug. 16 pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Fields was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years to a maximum of 19 years in prison for the shooting death of 24-year-old Doyle Kyle James, who was found dead at his Stoltz Road home.
According to previous reports, James’ body was found by his father, Doyle Horace James, at 9:40 a.m. on June 16, 2012. Doyle had come to his son’s house to have breakfast with him.
Fields is one of three Fayetteville residents involved in the shooting death of James.
Samantha Weaver was sentenced to at least 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder. District Attorney Johnson Britt said she worked as an “escort.”
Britt said a third person, Antonia Everett, of Winterberry Court, has pleaded guilty to attempted armed robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 9.
Britt said Everett was shot during the robbery and was taken to the Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, where he was arrested. According to Britt, Fields and Weaver drove to a parking lot in Hope Mills and left Everett there.
A murder charge against Everett was dismissed.
