HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A bond hearing has been scheduled for one of the three suspects accused of killing two people in a spree of deadly armed robberies back in January of 2015.
The bond hearing for Jerome Jenkins is scheduled to take place on February 2 at 1 p.m.in front of Horry County Circuit Court Judge Hyman.
There are currently no scheduled hearings for the other defendants in this case, McKinley Daniels and James Daniels.
Jenkins and McKinley and James Daniels 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 following the alleged armed robbery of several Sunhouse convenience stores in the Longs area that resulted in the deaths of two clerks: 40-year-old Bala Gopal Paruchuri and 30-year-old Trisha Stull.
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. The evidence in this person's home connected them to the murders of Paruchuri and Stull.
