EDENTON — A man wanted in connection with the recent shooting death of an Edenton man turned himself in to police earlier today.

Edward Devonne Wiggins, 36, of the 300 block of North Granville Street, is charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 23 shooting death of Ronald Taylor.

Wiggins is being held at the Chowan Detention Center without bond.

Taylor, 51, of 313 E. Church St., Edenton, was gunned down in the 200 block of East Church Street and later died of his injuries at Vidant-Chowan Hospital.

Police named Wiggins as a suspect in Taylor’s shooting death earlier this week.
