CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A man arrested and charged in the death of an Atlantic Beach pawn shop operator in 2008 is expected to appear in court on Friday.

A spokesperson for the Horry County Solicitor's Office said the court appearance by Jeffrey Jennings, 29, will help dictate when Jennings will stand trial for the death of Thomas Lane Holcombe, 37.

Jennings has been charged in connection to the murder of Holcombe, who was found dead at his business on July 25, 2008. At the time of his death, Holcombe was the co-owner of Thee Pawn Shoppe on US-17 in Atlantic Beach.

Authorities believe Jennings shot Holcombe during a robbery. Police said many items were stolen from the shop, and cases were broken. Two customers found Holcombe's body shortly after he was shot.

More than four months after Holcombe's death, Horry County Solicitor Greg Hembree announced he would seek the death penalty against Jennings in an official letter to the state.

A second suspect, identified as Brenna Renee Jennings, 31, of Greenville, TN, was also linked to the July 25 death of Holcombe. Brenna Jennings has been charged as an accessory after the fact to a felony by Horry County Police.

Booking records reveal Brenna Jennings remains incarcerated at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
