Mother and daughter charged in family member’s death due to neglect

January 10, 2018

Lexington, SC – A Gaston woman has been charged in the death of her disabled son. The woman's daughter has also been charged in the death.


Candie McKay Shearin, 45, and Tara Nerys Shearin, 20, are charged with abuse or neglect resulting in death to a vulnerable adult, according to arrest warrants.


“EMS responded to the home on State Pond Road Dec. 20 after 25-year-old Michael Anton Shearin was found unresponsive,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “We were called in to investigate after he showed obvious signs of neglect that were ultimately determined to be the cause of his death.”


Mr. Shearin suffered from muscular dystrophy and required around-the-clock care, according to Koon.


Mrs. Shearin and Ms. Shearin are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday.
