Deidra Remseur and Mark Wilson were shot to death in their Claremeont home in March of 2016. Rivera was also found guilty of aiding and abetting first-degree burglary, aiding and abetting robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.
During court testimony, the state argued that Rivera organized a group of men who went to rob and ultimately kill Deidra Ramseur and Wilson. The group included Reand Rivera, Devin Ussery, William Powell and Arsenio Curtis. Ussery and Powell pleaded guilty to charges related to the case last year while Curtis is scheduled to stand trial in July.
Catawba County Superior Court Judge Athena Brooks imposed two life sentences for the accessory charges, as well as a lesser prison term for some of the other charges.
