About voluntary manslaughter

North Carolina residents may be charged with voluntary manslaughter if they are suspected of having intentionally killed someone without having any prior intent to commit the act. For the label of voluntary manslaughter to be applied, the factors that led to the killing would need to have affected a reasonable person to the degree that they became disturbed mentally and physically. If this condition is not present, the offender may be accused of murder in the first degree or second degree instead.

Two dozen people charged in drug investigation

A drug investigation in three South Carolina counties resulted in more than 100 charges against 24 people. The investigation began in 2016 and is still ongoing. Law enforcement reports that wiretapping was a significant tool in the investigation. A press release from the state attorney general's office refers to the operation as "Gimme the Loot."

Woman killed in Mother's Day shooting due to mistaken identity

A South Carolina mother of three was the tragic victim of a violent crime on Mother's Day in a case of mistaken identity. The 36-year-old woman was driving home after a Mother's Day celebration when someone began shooting at her car. Prosecutors stated the car was shot at because it looked like another vehicle that was involved in a shootout earlier in the day. The victim's vehicle hit a wall at a neighborhood gas station after she was shot in the neck. She was taken to the hospital, where she died a few hours later.
