Bamberg man sentenced to life in store clerk slaying

  • Follow Crime & courts

BAMBERG, S.C. — A Bamberg County man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole in the shooting death of a 19-year-old store clerk.

Michael Daniels was sentenced in Bamberg on Monday after pleading guilty to murder and two counts of attempted murder.

Authorities say Daniels went into an Olar convenience store Nov. 1 and killed Alicia Dyches and wounded another employee and a customer.

Authorities say Dyches' father said Daniels harassed his daughter in the weeks before the killing. Daniels screamed profanities at Dyches' sister during a Nov. 3 hearing, moments before a judge denied him bond.

Days after his arrest, authorities put Daniels under observation after he slashed his throat with a broken light bulb.

Good! He needs to be off the streets for good. Now that I have said that, I am fully prepared to read all of the following posts about how this young black man is, "lost," "confused," and "mistreated."

I agree with Einstein. Exept for the fact that now we have to feed and clothe and provide for this degenerate for the rest of his natural life. I firmly believe that he should be putto death for this crime. He took the life of those two innocent people and nearly took the life of a third. Why should he get "3 hots and a cot" for the rest of his life? He should permanently reside 6 ft under. He can even choose his method as far as I'm concerned. Firing squad, public hanging or Ole' Sparky.

Sounds like he needs less observation and more light bulbs.
