The suspect in the county’s first murder case turned himself in a day after shooting his cousin.
Demonta Deone Gillespie surrendered without incident on Monday, March 23, at about 5:30 p.m., said Deputy Chief Steve Breland of the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office.
“One of his family members brought him to the sheriff’s office,” Breland said.
Gillespie, 32, is charged with the murder of Brandon Ellerbe, 28. Both are of Cheraw.
Law officers said the two got into a minor argument on Sunday, March 22, on Fordville Road when the shooting occurred at about 8:40 p.m.
