State v. Moore, ___ N.C. App. ___, 803 S.E.2d 196 (Jul. 18, 2017)

The trial court did not err by denying the defendant’s motion to suppress statements made to an officer while the officer was transporting the defendant to the law enforcement center. It was undisputed that the defendant made the inculpatory statements while in custody and before he had been given his Miranda rights. However, the court held that the defendant was not subjected to interrogation; rather, his statements were spontaneous utterances.
