A fourth man has now been denied bond as he faces charges in the killing of a Chester city councilman on Election Night.
The Chester County Sheriff’s Office said 18-year-old Derrick Dixon turned himself in Monday. His arrest came three days after Sheriff Alex Underwood announced three other suspects had been arrested in the killing of 69-year-old Chester City Councilman Odell Williams. The Rock Hill Herald reports Dixon, like the other three, also has ties to the Roundtree Circle gang in Chester. Dixon was charged with accessory to murder. Deputies believe 18-year-old Christopher Moore actually fired the fatal shots. 25-year-old Quinton McClinton and 20-year-old DeAngelo Roseboro were also charged with accessory.
Investigators say Williams was shot in the head as he sat in his car on November 4. The sheriff’s office still has not said why Williams was targeted or why he was in the neighborhood that night.
All four suspects are being held at the Chester County jail without bond and are not eligible to seek it again until a Circuit Court judge takes over the case, likely early next year.
Williams had served as a councilman for 17 years at the time of his death.
