22 May 2019 :
A Horry County jury sentenced Jerome Jenkins, 24, Black, to death. He did not dispute he killed 40-year-old Balla Paruchuri during a robbery at a convenience store on January 2, 2015. Jenkins was only being tried this week for killing Paruchuri, but authorities said he also killed clerk Trisha Stull in a robbery at a different convenience store on January 26th. Jenkins’ two co-defendants (McKinley Daniels and James Daniels) have already pleaded guilty throughout their case. Judge Robert Hood will issue a formal sentencing.
