MAXTON — A 42-year-old Maxton man is accused of working as his father’s accomplice in the murder of a 53-year-old man reported missing in April.
Kevin Trevor Oxendine joins his father, 60-year-old Jerry Oxendine, in facing charges related to the death of Delton Cummings, whose body was found in the Lumber River in Pembroke on May 9.
Kevin Oxendine was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with being an accessory after the fact to a felony, according to an arrest report.
Jerry Oxendine was charged with second-degree murder earlier this month and jailed under a $100,000 secured bond.
Maj. Anthony Thompson, chief of detectives for the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office, declined to say whether Kevin Oxendine is accused of putting Cummings’ body in the river near N.C. 710.
“I don’t know any of the details,” Thompson said.
Kevin Oxendine made his $10,000 secured bond before being placed in the Robeson County Detention Center.
Cummings, of Oakgrove Church Road in Lumberton, was reported missing by his family on April 26. He was last seen April 25 at Jerry Oxendine’s Iron Horse Drive home, which was destroyed by a fire at about midnight on April 26.
