ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina grand jury is slated to hear the case of a man accused in the murder of his stepfather and the wounding of his mother more than three weeks ago.
The Anderson Independent Mail reports (http://bit.ly/TsaBzC ) that a magistrate found probable cause to send the case of 49-year-old Robert Joe Frost to a grand jury.
Iva Police Chief Tommy Miller told a preliminary hearing Friday that Frost kicked his way into the home of Fayetta and James Davenport on July 15 and asked her for money.
A neighbor called police to say a man had kicked his way into the Davenports' home. When officers arrived, they discovered James Davenport had been stabbed 16 times and was lying dead in a bedroom, while Fayetta Davenport had been cut.
