UPDATE TO KERSHAW MURDER INVESTIGATION

Two more people have been arrested in connection with this shooting incident on Pine Ridge Drive on May 10th. William James Jones, age 55, of Kershaw, and Latoshia Marie Kirkland, age 41, also of Kershaw, were taken into custody yesterday morning, Monday, May 21, 2018. Both are charged with Misprision of a Felony, and Jones is also charged with Accessory After the Fact of Murder. Kirkland is the mother of Ka’Darius Aintwayn Kirkland, one of the three men charged with Murder in the death of Vincent Barry Lambert, Jr. Jones is Ka’Darius Kirkland’s uncle. Within a few minutes of officers’ arrival at the shooting scene Ka’Darius Kirkland became a suspect, and investigators learned the Kirklands lived on Fork Hill Road a short distance from the scene. Investigators went to the Kirkland home but did not find Ka’Darius Kirkand. However, they did speak with Latoshia Kirkland and William Jones about their knowledge of the incident and the location of Ka’Darius Kirkland. Investigators later learned the information provided by Latoshia Kirkland and Jones was not true and that shortly after the shooting Jones drove a car occupied by Latoshia Kirkland and picked up Ka’Darius Kirkland, Clyburn, and Patterson from a home on West 2nd Street in Kershaw and drove them to Heath Springs. Jones and Latoshia Kirkland were both released on bond Monday afternoon. Jones’ bonds totaled $15,500.00, and Kirkland’s bond was set at $5,000.00. Photographs of Jones and Latoshia Kirkland are attached.

“It’s important for us to get people charged with serious crimes like this into custody as quickly as possible for the protection of the public,” said Sheriff Barry Faile. “Folks who assist suspects and intentionally mislead us run the risk of ending up in jail, too.”
