CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The Timmonsville man accused of killing a mother and her two daughters in a shooting last month that also injured two others has been moved from the Florence County Detention Center to Horry County's J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

Florence County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Glenn Kirby confirms that 35-year-old Antwain Lashawn Adams was moved to the Conway jail because there were inmates in the Florence County Detention Center who knew the victims' family.

He added that some of the victims' relatives worked for the sheriff's office. Kirby said he didn't think anything was going to happen to the suspect, but they ultimately decided to err on the side of caution.

Online records from J. Reuben Long state Adams was booked on June 1.

He is charged with three counts of murder in the deaths of 39-year-old Cheresse Lutricia Jackson and her two daughters, 14-year-old Nykerria Shanyia Jackson and 12-year-old Breyanna Priscilla Jackson.

Adams also faces two counts of attempted murder.
