State v. Hunt, ___ N.C. App. ___, 792 S.E.2d 552 (Nov. 1, 2016)

The indictment properly charged the defendant with burning of a building in violation of G.S. 14-62. The indictment alleged that the “defendant . . . unlawfully, willfully and feloniously did set fire to, burn, cause to be burned and aid the burning” of a specified building. The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the indictment was defective because it did not allege that the defendant acted “wantonly,” noting that North Carolina courts have held that the terms “willfully” and “wantonly” are essentially the same.
