Deputies say 3 suspects committed 2018 murder

Media outlets in South Carolina have reported that three people have been charged in connection with the 2018 murder of a 25-year-old man. A Greenville County Sheriff's Office representative said deputies believe that a 37-year-old woman and two men aged 24 and 25 committed the crime. The woman was taken into custody on May 8 and two men, who are cousins, are being held in Spartanburg County on unrelated charges. The three suspects have all been charged with homicide and possessing a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

GCSO deputies believe that the three suspects knew the victim. They allege that the suspects were driving an SUV in Taylor on the night of the shooting and invited the victim to join them when they noticed him walking. According to deputies, the three suspects all drew handguns and opened fire on the victim when the conversation became heated and he attempted to flee on foot.

Deputies discovered the victim's body at about 7:00 a.m. on Mill Street. He was declared dead at the scene by a medical examiner who determined that the Greer resident had died after being shot multiple times. The GCSO has not confirmed when the two men being held in Spartanburg County will be transferred to the Greenville County Detention Center.

When presented with facts like these, prosecutors will often make generous plea offers to the defendants if they agree to plead guilty to committing a violent crime and provide testimony against the other defendants. When one defendant accepts these terms, the offers made to the remaining defendants are usually withdrawn. This is why experienced criminal defense attorneys in these cases may advise defendants who are thinking of accepting such an offer to reach a decision and act without delay.
