MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An initial court appearance has been set for Jejauncey Harrington, the man accused of murdering a Bennettsville mother and her eight-year-old daughter on May 5.

Harrington is scheduled to appear in court on August 17 at 9 a.m., according to the Marlboro County Clerk of Court. The office said he may appear before that date for a bond hearing, but Marlboro County Solicitor Will Rogers said there is no bond hearing scheduled at this time.
