Ballistic tests lead to additional murder charge


SUMTER, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say ballistics tests have linked a gun used to kill a Sumter man in April to the slaying of a pregnant teen last August.

Sumter County sheriff's deputies told The Item of Sumter ( that 25-year-old Christopher Lovely and 19-year-old Corey Geddie are charged with murder, death of a child in utero and seven counts of attempted murder.

Investigators say the pair fired several shots into a mobile home in August, killing 18-year-old Kiana Moore.

Sheriff Anthony Dennis says the investigation is continuing.

It wasn't clear if they had attorneys.

Lovely and Geddie also are charged with murder in the shooting death of Akeen Henry in April. Investigators say bullets fired in both shootings matched.
