The mother of a Rock Hill homicide suspect turned herself in to police on Friday after authorities issued an arrest warrant for her involvement in a deadly shooting.
Pamela St. Hill, mother of Abdul Emmanuel, 19, has been arrested and charged with accessory after the fact to murder, said Executive Officer Mark Bollinger of the Rock Hill Police Department. A municipal court judge set her bond at $200,000.
Police this week received information that St. Hill, 46, was not in Rock Hill, Bollinger said. After officers searched for two days, St. Hill arrived at the city law center and turned herself in on the warrants.
On Tuesday evening, Emmanuel turned himself in to police on murder warrants after they say he and two other teens robbed and fatally shot Michael Giddens in his Cedar Grove Lane home on Jan. 10. Emmanuel, who had been arrested and released in connection with a drive-by shooting earlier this month, was being held Friday at the York County Detention Center awaiting a Circuit Court bond hearing.
Maurice Burris, 16, and Dontavion White, 17, both turned themselves in to police on Monday. They were being held Friday at the York County Detention Center awaiting Circuit Court bond hearings.
Emmanuels sister, Lattoya St. Hill, was arrested and charged with accessory after police say she helped the teens flee to Charlotte. Pamela St. Hill also is accused of helping the three teenage homicide suspects evade arrest and flee to Charlotte, Bollinger said.
Family members and friends who help suspects wanted for crimes elude police will be charged as accessories, Rock Hill Police have said.
Last November, Shakira McCullough, Arliver McClinton and Deemetria McClinton were charged as accessories when police say they helped Desmond Cunningham and Kenyan McClinton flee to Florida after they allegedly shot Jordan Poirier, 20, to death at Stone Haven apartments. The third suspect in Poiriers slaying, Laterrious Ashley, had been hospitalized after he was shot in the hand and then broke his leg fleeing from the apartment complex.
