Two men arrested in Gaston homicide

March 2, 2017

 

LEXINGTON, S.C. – Two Gaston men have been arrested in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in his home during a welfare check Feb. 20.

 

Charles Anthony Allen Jr., 22, and Clenord James Graham, 33, are charged with murder, kidnapping, burglary and criminal conspiracy in the death of Robert Kobylak, according to arrest warrants.

 

“Detectives believe Allen and Graham killed Kobylak during a burglary and kidnapping at his Shadow Dale Drive home in Gaston,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said.

 

Allen was arrested late Monday night by Aiken County deputies. Graham was arrested Thursday morning by a U.S. Marshals Service task force in Darlington County, according to Koon.

 

Both are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. Allen’s bond has been denied. Graham is expected to appear in a bond hearing tomorrow.

 

Koon said Kobylak’s death is still under investigation. Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME-SC. Information can also be shared by texting "TIPSC" along with your message to CRIMES (274637).

 

Tipsters don’t have to share their name with Crimestoppers and they could become eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 if the information they provide leads to an arrest.
