COLUMBIA, SC — Another man has been charged in connection to a 6-year-old cold case homicide, according to a Richland County Sheriff’s Department release.
Alfred “Domenick” Wright, 32, is charged with burglary, attempted armed robbery, conspiracy and murder. He is the third person to be arrested in connection with the robbery and shooting death of Jospeh Richardson on Nov. 12, 2006, the release states.
That day, deputies responded to a shooting call at an apartment building in the 7000 block of garners Ferry road. Once there, they found the door to Richardson’s apartment forced down and the unresponsive man on the ground with a gunshot wound to his upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Few leads turned up during the initial investigation, and the case went cold. Eventually, tips came in allowing deputies to determine that robbers targeted Richardson’s home by mistake and killed the man.
Christopher Trice and Tomasina Miller were both arrested in June 2012 in connection with the case. Both were charged with murder, armed robbery and kidnapping. The department is still following up on leads and additional arrests could be coming, the release states.
Wright is being held at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center. Bond cannot be set for the man until he goes before a circuit judge because he is charged with murder. Trice and Miller are both being held at the jail.
