MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Three individuals have been arrested in the beating of a man in Mullins last weekend, and now one is being charged with murder.

Marion County Sheriff Mark Richardson says his officers responded to Pearly Road in Mullins on the evening of Friday, May 4 where a man was badly beaten, and suffered from severe head trauma.

After an investigation into the incident, 22-year-old Quintin Godbolt was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact of attempted murder. Godbolt has already been released from police custody on $15,000 surety bond.

Two days after the crime, 20-year-old Terry Blackmon of Mullins was arrested and charged with attempted murder and attempted robbery. Bond was denied for Blackmon, who remains in custody at the Marion County Detention Center.

A third suspect, 19-year-old Tianna Brown of Mullins, was arrested three days after the incident and charged with accessory after the fact of attempted murder. Brown is being held on $100,000 bond.

On Monday, Sheriff Richardson told WMBF News that Blackmon's charge was upgraded to murder.

The motive for this crime is still unclear.
