Former neighbor charged in 2010 Carteret County murder to appear in court today

CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – A South Carolina man arrested for a murder that happened more than 13 years ago in Carteret County is due in court Tuesday morning.

Robert Eiskant, of Mount Pleasant, was arrested by the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service on January 4th.

Carteret County deputies say Eiskant and Johnny Salter were neighbors in Atlantic then.

The 41-year-old Salter was found dead in his Ross Lane home on December 11, 2010, after being shot twice.

Deputies say the two men got into an argument just hours before Salter was found dead. They have not said yet what led them to make today’s arrest.

Eiskant got to the Carteret County jail Monday afternoon.

His first court appearance is scheduled for today between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
