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.

What a hard life this young

What a hard life this young woman has led. I would just love to tell her that she is made in the image of Christ... that no matter what she has done, He still loves her. She will have to pay for her mistakes on this earth, but even if she had to pay with her own life, she still has the opportunity to grab hold of Christ.

Reading the comments I get

Reading the comments I get the impression most people have this woman tried and convicted. Based on the information in newspaper all we know is she was charged. We really don't know that she actually killed the man and if she in fact killed the man was it in self defense? Will she get a fair trial? I doubt it. The public has already formed an opinion based upon the fact she was arrested and charged
