YADKINVILLE — According to the Yadkin County Superior Court docket, the three men charged with the murder of Jonesville Police Officer Greg Martin in 1996 are scheduled to appear in court this week.

Scott Vincent Sica of Cape Coral, Fla., was arrested on Oct. 3, 2012, 16 years after the shooting death of Martin. In January of 2013, Brian Eugene Whittaker, 37, of Cape Coral, Fla.; and Marc Peterson Olroyd, 42, of Rockwood, Tenn., also were charged in the case.

Martin was shot in the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 1996, while investigating a suspicious person behind a strip mall in Jonesville.

After radioing a dispatcher about the incident, Martin stopped a red Dodge pickup truck on Interstate 77 just south of Jonesville. An N.C. Highway Patrol trooper heard the radio call and went to the scene to assist Martin.

Upon arrival, he discovered Martin’s body on the side of I-77 with multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
