POWDERSVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A man who led deputies on a multi-county chase resulting in the death of a driver in Anderson County earlier this year appeared in bond court on Sunday.

The crash happened around 4:30 a.m. Thursday, February 18, on Anderson Road at Highway 153 about two miles south of Easley.

Deputy Drew Pinciaro with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to an address on South Florida Avenue around 3:45 a.m. to serve warrants on 25-year-old Dexter Davon Reeves.

Two of the warrants were for domestic violence and unlawful conduct toward a child stemming from an Feb 5 incident. Two other warrants were for domestic violence and burglary in connection with an incident that occurred earlier that morning, Pinciaro said.

Deputies arrived to find Reeves sitting in a vehicle, and said he sped off as the deputies approached him. Deputies tried to catch up to the fleeing suspect on Highway 81.

Pinciaro said when deputies reached the Highway 153 intersection, they saw that Reeves' car had hit another vehicle. Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman said a car struck a pick-up truck at the intersection.

The driver of the pickup truck died at the scene.  

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman identified the victim as 62-year-old Stephen Alan Burnett of Easley. Burnett died from multiple internal injures. He was on his way to work at GBS Lumber in Mauldin at the time of the crash. 

Burnett's manner of death was ruled a homicide.

Troopers say Burnett was driving south on Highway 153 when Reeves collided with him at the the intersection. 

Reeves was taken to a hospital for treatment following the crash, and booked into the Greenville County Detention Center late Thursday night.

Earlier this year, Reeves went before a judge on charges of burglary first degree, abandonment of minor child under age 16, and two counts of domestic violence first degree, according to online jail records. He was denied bond.

On Sunday, Reeves appeared at a bond hearing concerning charges he would face in connection with the Anderson County crash.

Reeves was charged with reckless homicide and will be held on a $50,000 surety bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for January 6, but a trial date has not yet been determined.
