MARION, S.C. (WMBF) - A man and woman have both been arrested in connection to a murder in the Pee Dee, according to authorities.

The Marion Police Department said Wednesday that 21-year-old Talearia Robinson was arrested Tuesday and charged with accessory after the fact to murder and accessory after the fact to attempted murder. She was granted a $30,000 bond, police said.

Marion Police Chief Tony Flowers then said a second suspect, Devante Legette, was arrested Wednesday in Columbia by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. He faces charges of murder and attempted murder.

The charges stem from an incident that happened on March 2 on the 800 block of Bluff Street that resulted in the death of James Cross, Jr.

Another person was also hurt, but no further details were provided on their condition.
