Lexington, SC 05/01/2023 (Paul Kirby) – According to Eleventh Circuit Solicitor Rick Hubbard’s office, last Friday, Morgan Dayle Carr, 31, was convicted for her role in the 2018 Murder and Armed Robbery of Robert William All, Jr.. All was 22-years old at the time of his death.


Chief Administrative Judge Walton J. McLeod, IV, presided over the week-long trial. After hearing the jury’s verdict, McLeod sentenced Carr to 40-years in prison for the murder, and thirty 30 additional years for the armed robbery. These sentences are to be served concurrently. Carr will not be eligible for parole due to type of offense she committed. In March of 2019, Charlie Don Robinson, III, an accomplice of Carr’s, received a forty 40-years after he entered a guilty plea to Murder.


According to testimony given during the trial, on July 11, 2018, Morgan Carr, along with Charlie Robinson and another codefendant, stole a 2018 Nissan Altima from the victim, Robert All after they killed him. The vehicle was a rental car borrowed from another friend. At the time of the shooting, Carr and Robinson were dating however, Carr and the victim had a previous relationship. Robert All and Charlie Robinson knew each other through Carr.

On the day of the shooting, Carr invited Robert over to her house. When Robert was about to leave, Charlie Robinson asked Robert All for a ride. They eventually ended up on Toole Smith Road in the Swansea area of Lexington County. At some point, Robinson ordered Robert out of the car at gunpoint after hitting him in the head and demanding he give him the car. Both men got out of the vehicle and Robinson then shot Robert in the back. He then shot him three additional times. The fatal gunshot hit Robert in the back of the head. Due to Robert’s injuries and blood, his face was unrecognizable and he did not have any identification on him. His body was later identified by his tattoos.


During the trial, evidence and testimony revealed that Carr set this all up. Carr, Robinson, and a third codefendant drove to Toole Smith Road that night to retrieve a van that belonged to Carr’s mother. This van was previously traded for drugs and the drug dealer was not going to return the van because the debt was not paid up yet. The evidence and testimony revealed that the group were planning to steal the car from Robert to exchange it for the van.


Evidence presented at trial revealed that Carr told Robinson that Robert still had the key fob for the vehicle on him. Residents of that area said they heard the gunshots and saw more than one person outside of the car moving in front of the headlights of the vehicle. Robert’s body was turned over and Robinson went through Robert’s pockets removing the key fob to the vehicle. Robert’s wallet and cell phone were also taken.


During the trial, a witness testified that the day before the shooting, Carr and Robinson were overheard discussing stealing the vehicle form Robert All. Carr was heard telling Robinson that she wanted to see Robert hurt as she was shooting IV drugs into Robinson during the conversation. Text messages were located during the investigation that were sent by Carr. Those were also introduced at the trial. They revealed that Carr had indeed planned to steal the car from Robert. During questioning, Carr gave multiple, changing statements lying to the police each time. Carr initially told the police she was home and did not know what happened. However, during a search of her residence, Robert’s stolen driver’s license in a tool chest.


During the trial, prosecutors argued to the jury that Robinson may have pulled the trigger that night, but that Carr pulled the trigger first when she set her plan into motion. Prosecutors successfully argued that Robert’s death was a robbery gone bad and that Robinson did exactly what Carr wanted him to do.


Senior Assistant Solicitor Sutania A. Fuller, Senior Assistant Solicitor Robby McNair, and Assistant Solicitor Dante Esposito handled the trial of this case. The investigation was conducted by the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.
