Judge continues pre-trial motions in Angie Pipkin murder trial

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Randy Robinson, the man charged in the 2014 death of Angie Pipkin, must continue to wait on a decision over whether to dismiss the 15th Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office from his case.

On Tuesday, Steven John, the judge assigned to the case, continued several motions filed by the defense in the case against Randy Robinson, who is accused of killing Pipkin.

Robinson is accused of killing Angie Pipkin two years ago, dismembering her body, and dumping it into the Great Pee Dee river in Darlington County.

In Tuesday’s pre-trial hearing, the focus was on two motions. One was to grant bond, and one was to dismiss the 15th circuit solicitor’s office from the case.

The motion aimed at the prosecution focused on Robinson’s former public defender Chris Helms.

Helms now works for the solicitors office, something the defense says should disqualify the office altogether.

After closing the courtroom to go over what Helms knows, the Honorable Judge Steven John continued the motion for a later date.

Defense attorney, Morgan Martin, also withdrew his request to grant Robinson bond.

“It’s like a never ending road to never getting enough closure like we want to,” said Taylor Pipkin, Angie’s daughter.

Taylor, and other family members watched over the hearing from the front row. They see these motions as procrastination, and just want the trial to be over.

“As far as I know, what he did was wrong,” Pipkin said. “The way I feel about him, the way my family is hurting from the darkness and the depression that has been brought onto us.”

The family says this week marked two years since Angie’s death and it’s about time everyone got some answers.

The judge also continued a separate motion filed for discovery in the case today.

He says the state hasn’t had enough time to go over it before making a ruling.
