Granville County Sheriff Brindell Wilkins is accused of urging someone to kill a deputy he thought was about to expose his alleged use of racially offensive language.

Wilkins was indicted Monday on two counts of obstruction of justice, and the grand jury indictment states that he told someone to kill former Deputy Joshua Freeman, telling the person to "take care of it" and "the only way you gonna stop him is kill him." The indictment also alleges that the sheriff then withheld knowledge of a threat against Freeman.

Freeman worked for the Granville County Sheriff's Office from November 2011 until August 2014, days before the actions outlined in the indictment allegedly occurred. At the time, he was let go because "his services are no longer needed," Wilkins wrote in his termination letter.
