Sheriff: Missing Orangeburg Co. teen's body found in swamp

The Associated PressFebruary 18, 2014 

— Calhoun County sheriff's deputies say a 17-year-old girl has been killed by two brothers who thought she set them up to be robbed.

Sheriff Thomas Summers told The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg (http://bit.ly/1fmE6zk ) that 17-year-old Kymmara Randolph had nothing to do with the robbery.

Summers says Randolph was killed shortly after she was last seen leaving an Orangeburg home with a man Feb. 13. Authorities found her body Friday in a swamp after several days of searching.

Deputies say the men lured Randolph from her home by saying they were taking her to a party.

Forty-five-year-old Jerry McKnight and 32-year-old Bryant McKnight have been charged with murder. It was not known if they had lawyers.
