Arrest made in overnight shooting

July 25, 2016



CHAPIN, SOUTH CAROLINA – A Little Mountain man has been arrested in connection with a shooting incident that left two men dead early Sunday morning.


Joseph Elijah Mills, 25, is charged with two counts of murder for fatally shooting two men with a handgun while at a Lake Murray nightspot on the outskirts of Chapin near the Newberry County line, according to arrest warrants.


“The suspect was arrested without incident at a Chapin residence Sunday afternoon,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said.


The victims have been identified by Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher as 40-year-old Charles Allen Judge Jr. and 29-year-old Jonathan Michael Prins.


“Mills is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a bond hearing,” Koon said. “We’re still interviewing persons of interest and reviewing evidence.”
