Fugitive Task Force Arrests Suspects In October Murder

Robert-Louis-Jackson-FIAn SBI Fugitive Task Force arrested two suspects wanted in connection with a Selma murder investigation on Thursday.

Robert Louis Jackson, 27, of Raleigh and Deidra Naomi McDaniel, 22, of Selma were found together in an apartment in Raleigh and arrested. They were held in the Wake County Jail.

According to Selma Police, Jackson allegedly shot Marquel Cardwell Williams three times in the 300 block of East Noble Street near Downtown Selma on October 12th. Williams died three days later in the hospital from the gunshot wounds.

Police Captain R.L. Daniels said an acquaintance of Jackson, Deidra Naomi McDaniel, lived about one block away from the scene of the shooting.  She was charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder and altering or destroying criminal evidence. 

Diedra-McDaniels-FIPolice said last month the motive for the homicide may have been over a female the victim and suspect had previously dated.  According to the NC Department of Corrections website, Jackson was released from prison in May 2014 after serving just under 18 months for a felony drug conviction.
