TWO PERSONS ARRESTED ON MURDER CHARGES
Sunday, July 3, 2011

 
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff’s Department detectives have arrested a 26-year-old Columbia woman and 28-year-old West Columbia man in connection with the death of a 45-year-old man who died as a result of being hit several times on his head with a wine bottle on June 26 at his home on Jakes Landing Road near Lexington.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said detectives arrested Margaret Marie Driggers, 26, of 4533 Corbett Street, Columbia, on arrest warrants on charges of murder and misprision of a felony. Detectives arrested Demetriss Alshawn Glenn, 28, of 3118 Dudley Road, Lot 19, West Columbia, on an arrest warrant on a charge of murder.

Driggers and Glenn were being held on Saturday, July 2 at the Lexington County Detention Center while awaiting bond hearings on the murder charges, Metts said. Under South Carolina law, a circuit judge would have to conduct bond hearings for Driggers and Glenn because murder carries a punishment of life in prison. The 11th Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office has not yet scheduled bond hearings for Driggers and Glenn on the murder charges.

Detectives are searching for a third person, who has not yet been positively identified, whom detectives think accompanied Driggers and Glenn when they fatally beat Timothy Edward Tice, 45, on June 26 at Tice’s home at 220 Jakes Landing Road, Lot E-4, Lexington, Metts said.

Metts asked anyone with information concerning the identity of the third person whom detectives think was involved in Tice’s murder to call the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Citizens also can provide information anonymously by accessing the Crime Tip link on the Sheriff’s Department web site (www.lexingtonsheriff.com).
