Killed – Roger Dell Tant (Henderson, NC)


A third charge of first-degree murder awaits Joey Lamont Kearney, the 16-year-old involved in two New Year’s Eve incidents that left three people dead.

Sam Currin, the district attorney, said he expects Kearney to be charged in connection to the shooting death of 63-year-old Roger Dell Tant in Vance County earlier in December. Kearny, known as “Lil-Dirty,” is already charged with first-degree murder in the double homicide on Dec. 31 of Akesia Michelle Toney, 37, and her 16-year-old daughter Brianna Jones.

Tant was found on Dec. 22 in his 3985 Weldon’s Mill Road, Lot 14, mobile home. He was believed to have been shot to death the Thursday prior, on Dec. 19.
