3rd Teen Arrested in Death of Chester Grandmother


By Alicia Barnes

CHESTER, S.C. (AP) _ A third teenager has been arrested in the death of a grandmother killed in her Chester home.

Authorities said 19-year-old Shaderius Demark Cohen was arrested Thursday night and charged with murder and weapons possession. Cohen was being held without bond, and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

Investigators say 59-year-old Jimmie Paul was shot in her legs and chest at around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday. Chester County deputies say Paul's 17-year-old grandson and another man, 18-year-old Marquaes Buchanan, are also facing murder charges.

Investigators say the teens planned the attack but officers are releasing few other details, including why Paul was targeted. Authorities say Paul's husband was working in a shed behind the home when his wife was killed. He found her body.

This was a horrific tragedy. Jimmie was a friend of mine. One of the nicest people you would of ever had the pleasure of knowing. Sad thing tho was she loved her grandchildren and she did her best in raising her grandchildren. She was proud of them. I can only imagine the horror she felt in the final moments leading to her death. I hope justice is done and this obviously disturbed grandson spends the rest of his days behind bars. I feel very badly for the Ray family of Columbia and for her husband who she loved very much will now have to live without his wife. Jimmie will be missed. My heart just aches, terribly as the world lost a beautiful angel and now God gained another one. Rest in peace, Jimmie - Love, Susan M. Shunkwiler ~
