CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Bond has been denied on all charges for the three men arrested for the Sunhouse convenience store robberies that left two people dead, and a third robbery at a Scotchman in Horry County, according to officials from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center's magistrate court.

McKinley Daniels, 33, of Loris, James Daniels, 27, of Nichols, and Jerome Jenkins, 20, of Loris, have each been charged with two counts of murder, three counts of armed robbery, three counts of using a firearm during a violent crime, and one count of attempted murder, Deputy Chief Kelvin Waites announced at a press conference Friday afternoon. 

The suspects will now go on to circuit court in the future for additional bond hearings. Bond for murder charges cannot be set in magistrate court due to the severity of the charges.

A task force of eight different law enforcement agencies worked around the clock until a lead brought investigators to Loris, where a person of interest was taken into custody, according to a HCPD news release.

Evidence at this person's home connected them to the murder of Bala Paruchuri during the armed robbery at the Sunhouse on Highway 905 in Longs on January 2, the armed robbery of the Scotchman on Lake Arrowhead Road, and the murder of Trisha Stull during the armed robbery of the Sunhouse on Oak Street in Conway on January 25, according to the news release.

“We believe these crimes were committed by 3 individuals, all of which are in custody at this time,” the release states. "Again, the success of this investigation could not have been possible without assistance from the community, and our local and state law enforcement agencies, and we are indebted to them."

The agencies that assisted in this investigation include: The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the 15th Circuit Solicitor's Drug Enforcement Unit, the Myrtle Beach Police Department, the Conway Police Department, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“I would like to extend my gratitude to the Horry County Police Department and the many other law enforcement personnel for their collaborative efforts and for making this Horry County's number one priority," stated Chris Eldridge, Horry County Administrator. "We are hopeful our community can enjoy a greater sense of security as a result of these arrests."

On Friday, January 2, 40-year-old Bala Gopal Paruchuri, a clerk at the Sunhouse store in Longs, was shot and killed by suspects robbing the store, according to police. Surveillance video shows two masked men in hoodies.

On Sunday, January 25, 30-year-old Trisha Stull, another Sunhouse clerk, was shot and killed during another armed robbery, according to police. Again, two masked men in hoodies are seen on the store's surveillance camera.

The three men were also charged in connection with the armed robbery of the Scotchman store on Lake Arrowhead Road on January 25.
