Charges have been upgraded on the June 14th, 2020 incident involving the death of a one year old child on Springvale Road. This decision was made after receiving additional evidence/lab results and consulting with Newberry Pathology Group, LLC, the Kershaw County Coroner’s Office, and our solicitor’s office.
Donavan Marshall Wright and Taylor Cheyenne Metz’s charges have been upgraded to ‘homicide by child abuse’. Both turned themselves into authorities today (July 17th) and were booked into the Kershaw County Detention Center. Their bonds on these charges cannot be set by a magistrate. They will have to go before a circuit court judge at a later date.
