ST. MATTHEWS, S.C. (AP) - A 27-year-old Orangeburg man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for killing a man who bumped into him on the dance floor of a Calhoun County nightclub.
The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports that a jury found David Benjamin guilty Thursday of murder.
Authorities say 23-year-old Dominique Lawton was shot in the head in September 2011 outside the Piggy Park nightclub near Elloree.
A judge sentenced 26-year-old Josh Haggood to seven years in prison as part of a plea deal after he testified against Benjamin.
A third defendant, 27-year-old Kevin Frasier, is awaiting trial. Prosecutors say he fired his gun in the air several times, which started the gun battle that killed Lawton.
Investigators found more than a dozen shell casings in the club's parking lot.
