A 22-year-antique drug dealer in South Carolina is accused of deliberately killing a sorority girl with a deadly dose of narcotics, officials mentioned.
Anthony “A.J.” Hunt was once arraigned Monday on federal fees in connection to the 2016 murder of 19-year-antique Rachel Brandman, who allegedly overdosed at her condominium near the School of South Carolina in Columbia, The State reported.
Hunt was charged with unlawful distribution of Oxycodone resulting in loss of life and ownership of a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime.
“Mr. Hunt had every reason why to consider that dying may happen while he allotted the drug,” prosecutors mentioned at the hearing.
Prosecutors claimed that Hunt deliberately killed the nineteen-12 months-antique scholar — but government haven’t indicated what led them to figure out the case was once a homicide.
Brandman, from Virginia, used to be found unresponsive in January 2016 by means of her roommate at their rental about 5 blocks from campus, police mentioned.
Officers initially ruled the Chi Omega sorority sister’s demise was “suspicious but accidental,” in step with The State.
If convicted, Hunt faces life in jail, consistent with WHAM.
