John Edward Ogburn

Raleigh — Raleigh police filed second-degree murder charges Wednesday against Cory Lamar Henderson, a 33-year-old Louisburg man in connection with a fatal wreck on Old Wake Forest Road last Saturday. Police said that Henderson tried to pass John Edward "Eddie" Ogburn, 28, who was in a turning lane to go left from Old Wake Forest Road onto Zachary Brook Lane, where he lived. Henderson, of 1560 Ferrells Bridge Road, was initially charged with driving while impaired and felony death by vehicle, among other offenses. He also faces felony charges for injuries suffered by Obgurn's two passengers. Prosecutors said charges can be upgraded in cases of drunk-driving deaths when aggravating factors are present.
