Murder Suspect Captured

Sheriff Tony Chavis
August 3, 2019

DARLINGTON COUNTY, S.C. – According to Sheriff Tony Chavis, Patrol Deputies took Reneka Shane Brown into custody shortly before 4 a.m. this morning at a residence in the Oates community.

 “A Patrol Deputy received a tip about Brown’s location early this morning, went to the location and was able to arrest Brown,” stated Sheriff Tony Chavis.  “I greatly appreciate the community sharing information with us to help us quickly and safely resolve this situation.”

Brown was originally arrested and charged with accessory after the fact to a murder.  Investigators now believe Brown played a larger role.  On June 4, Brown was released from the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center on an$80,000 bond for that charge. Investigators have arrested and charged Zieyre Carroway, Davion Cockfield and Marqueze Robinson with murder. All three remain in custody.

Brown is currently being held at the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center.  Brown is expected to appear before a Darlington County Magistrate today.
