Judge orders Whitehead back to Central Prison

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - One of three men charged in a Farmville triple murder is back at Central Prison in Raleigh and his father is not happy about it.

25-year-old Willie Whitehead made a court appearance in Greenville Tuesday morning. He's facing charges in the 2012 triple murder at the Hustle Mart in Farmville.
    
Authorities moved Whitehead to Central Prison in Raleigh after an alleged plot to kidnap and kill several top law enforcement agents.
    
A request to move Whitehead back to Pitt or Edgecombe counties was denied.

"This fine facility,” said Willie whitehead Sr, murder suspect's father, “Why can't they hold him here where we can see him and the lawyers can have access to him? That's all were asking. That's all we asking."

Whitehead's lawyers also asked for a bond reduction, which was also denied.

The cases of two other men accused in the crimes, Xavier Shamble and Raekwon Blount, had their cases continued.
