COLUMBIA MAN CONVICTED OF MURDER IN KFC SHOOTING DEATH
Friday, October 7, 2011

 
Columbia, SC – This afternoon a Columbia man received a 35 year prison sentence for the 2010 shooting death of Steven Pierre Duckett of Eastover. Defendant, Robert White, 20, was found guilty of murder at the conclusion of a four day trial. Judge Clifton Newman, who presided over the case, sentenced White to 35 years in prison without parole.

Robert White and two others were charged with murder and armed robbery in the 2010 shooting death, which occurred outside a Columbia area Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Workers at the KFC on Taylor Street near Two Notch Road found Duckett dead in the front seat of his Chevrolet Tahoe when they arrived for work. According to police reports, the Tahoe was blocking the restaurant's drive-through lane. Duckett had been shot in the head. Tips from the public led Columbia Police Department investigators to the three teenagers.

“Today’s outcome brings closure to a heinous crime committed upon a young person in our community,” said Solicitor Dan Johnson.
