Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announces additional charges filed against Timothy T. Shells who was arrested on Friday for the slaying of 55-year-old Dexter Craft.

Shells — DOB: 7/8/89 — was charged on Monday with armed robbery, in addition to the murder charge he was arrested for on Friday. After stabbing Craft to death, Shells robbed Craft of his belongings, including his wallet.

Shells was booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in the early hours of Saturday morning.
