State v. Locklear, ___ N.C. App. ___, 816 S.E.2d 197 (May. 1, 2018)

In this burning case, the trial court erred by instructing the jury on flight. Here, the evidence raises no more than suspicion and conjecture that the defendant fled the scene. Moreover, there is no evidence that the defendant took steps to avoid apprehension. The error however was not prejudicial.
