GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) – Greenville County deputies say they've charged a man with murder after another man was found shot and killed on August 16.
The Greenville County Coroner's Office first confirmed a death investigation was underway Friday afternoon after a person was found deceased at a home along Crestfield Road.
Deputies said they were called to the scene shortly before 4 p.m. and found a man dead outside.
The coroner's office later identified the man as 28-year-old Brandon Rashad O'Neal of Greenville. He was pronounced dead on the scene, and the coroner says the case is being actively investigated as a homicide.
Just before 11 p.m. Friday, Greenville County deputies named 33-year-old John Derrick Robinson as the suspect. Robinson has since been charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
At a bond court hearing in Greenville County Saturday morning, Robinson was denied bond on his murder charge, and given a $20,000 bond for being in possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Robinson faced O'Neal's father, and sister - who spoke emotionally. Both asked the question, why? O'Neal's sister said he was a father to a young girl.
GCSO stresses the investigation is ongoing and asks anyone with more information about what happened to call 23-CRIME.
