Sumter shooting suspect to have bond hearing in January

Posted

The 22-year-old who was arrested Monday in the shooting death of a 39-year-old man will go before a circuit court judge for a bond hearing regarding charges of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime on Jan. 12.

Kentwon Savon Thames-Daniels, of Meadowbrook Road, turned himself in at the Sumter Law Enforcement Center on Monday for his alleged connection to the reported shooting death of David Green Bratton on Sunday afternoon.

Magistrate Judge Larry Blanding set a $65,000 surety bond for Thames-Daniels for a parole violation charge and set a probation and parole hearing for Dec. 20 during a first appearance hearing at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center on Tuesday.

Blanding said a circuit court judge will consider setting bond for Thames-Daniels' more serious charges: murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

According to previously released information from the Sumter Police Department, Thames-Daniels and Bratton were seen arguing outside of a Flamingo Road residence before at least one gunshot was fired before 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Bratton was transported to Palmetto Health Tuomey where he died a few hours later.

Thames-Daniels continues to be held at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.
