A man wanted in connection with the shooting death of a McDonald’s employee last month in Batesburg-Leesville has turned himself in.
Roderquiz Cook, 29, the restaurant’s former manager, has been charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery, said Batesburg-Leesville Police Chief Wallace Oswald. He is in the Lexington County Detention Center.
On Oct. 13, McDonald’s employee Willie Jennings was shot to death while taking out the restaurant’s trash after closing. Police have said that Cook, his wife and two other men allegedly had cooked up a plan to rob the restaurant. Tasha Matthews, 36, Angelo Walker, 21, and Meon Miller, 18, have been in custody since the shooting. Those three also are charged with murder and remain in jail.
Police had been searching for Cook, who lived in Columbia, since obtaining an arrest warrant late last month.
