He was charged on July 13th and turned himself in the next day. Authorities responded to a call about a shooting at Norman’s residence on July 6th. He was found deceased at that location from an apparent gunshot wound.
Wilkes Deputies say the shooting stemmed from an altercation at the same Bagley Springs Road residence. The suspect and the victim are said to be brothers.
Ervin Norman has been released from custody under $100,000 secured bond and has an August 25th court date.
Under North Carolina law, a charge of voluntary manslaughter indicates lack of malice and without premeditation. It also indicates an act resulting from provocation. Voluntary manslaughter is a Class D felony.
