U.S. Marshals and SBI agents located a Snow Hill man wanted in connection with a Greene County murder Monday.

Three Goldsboro men have already been charged.

Authorities caught up with Terrence Melton, 29, at about 5:30 p.m. in Walstonburg, according to a press release.

Melton is the fourth man to be charged in the April 24 shooting death of Linwood Jones, 49, of Hookerton.

Melton joins Derejay Williams Speede, 17, Jeremy Hinnant, 20, and Daquan Hines, 20, each of Goldsboro, in the Greene County Jail, where all four suspects are being held without bond.

Speede was the first among the four to be charged with felony homicide. He was already in the Wayne County Jail on armed robbery charges when transferred to the Greene County Jail May 5.

Hinnant and Hines fell into police hands next.

Hinnant was charged June 26.

Hines turned himself in to Greene County authorities July 2.
