ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WIS) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office reports two suspects were arrested in connection with a homicide incident in Orangeburg County.

Nasir Washington, 18, and Jaquail Mack, 17, have each been charged with murder. Mack is also charged with possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said an 18-year-old man from East Court was found dead last week in his own yard.

Investigators were called to a residential area off Five Chop Road on Tuesday, November 29, after receiving a report of a dead man.

During a hearing on Monday, December 5, bonds for the suspects were deferred to a later date by a circuit court judge.

“This is just absolutely senseless,” Sheriff Ravenell said. “But they’ll get at least 30 years to think about their actions.”

If anyone has any more information on the case, they are urged to call the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372).
