Edgefield County woman charged in slaying gets more charges

Lakashia Walker



Police have filed new charges against the Trenton, S.C., woman who is accused of killing a man in Edgefield County.

Edgefield County sheriff’s Cpl. Robbie Harter said Lakashia Rochelle Walker, 27, has been charged with robbery and possession of crack cocaine in addition to murder.

Walker is being held at Edgefield County Detention Center without bond.

She was arrested Sunday in the killing of Barrett Scott Stephenson, 35, whose body was found around 3 a.m. on the side of Ashley Circle in Trenton.

Deputy Coroner David Burnett said Stephenson’s autopsy was performed Monday morning, and results are pending toxicology and forensic tests.

Harter said he thought Walker and Stephenson had some sort of relationship, but was unsure whether it was romantic.
