Thursday, December 29, 2011

KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) - The Kershaw County Sheriff's Department says a gruesome crime lead them to open up a free concealed weapons class for women.

According to Sheriff Jim Matthews, the department opened up the course and waived an $80 fee to sign up in response to the brutal murder of Beverly Hope Melton.

Melton was found dead Tuesday after deputies say she was beaten and sexually assaulted by a man she never even knew.

That man, 23-year-old Nickolas Miller, could be hit with the death penalty, according to Matthews.

Matthews says 30 spots were offered on the department's Facebook page and were filled in just minutes.
