Maurice Kinard, the suspect in the Thanksgiving night killing of a Columbia area man, has been arrested and charged with murder, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Monday.
Kinard, 31, is being held without bond at the Alvin Glenn Detention Center.
He is charged with the shooting death of Desmond Lewis, 31, whose body was found lying in the middle of Bluff Road with multiple gunshot wounds to the upper and lower body, a sheriffs department press release said.
He was found lying in front of a house on the 4500 block of Bluff Road around 9:45 p.m.
Lewis was taken to Palmetto Richland, where he later was pronounced dead from his injuries.
