GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – 32-year-old Anquan Terrell Pittman pleaded guilty to 2nd-degree murder for his role in the murder of Ronnie Chapman in December of 2013.
Pittman was sentenced to over 23-29 years in prison. He will begin serving 6-8 years in prison for the attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.
The shooting took place on December 18, 2013 in broad daylight at the Arlington Square Apartments behind the Greenville Mall. Chapman was found dead sitting behind the wheel of a car.
One week after the shooting, Moses Pittman, Anquan’s cousin, had this to say about Chapman, “Ronnie Chapman, he’s one of my best friends. I ain’t killed nobody and I ain’t robbed nobody. I’m in here locked up and my best friend’s dead. I’m a victim, too, and they’re charging me with it.”
In August of 2014, Moses was already in custody for the crime.
