Man Gets 45 Years for Killing in Lancaster Home


By Alicia Barnes

LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) _ A 20-year-old man is facing 45 years in prison in the killing of the owner of a Lancaster produce stand.

Prosecutors told The Herald of Rock Hill that Keith Robinson pleaded guilty Monday to murder, attempted murder, armed robbery and several other charges.

Investigators say Robinson was with several men when 54-year-old Donald Morris was shot in the head and killed at his Lancaster home in June. Authorities say Robinson also broke into Morris' house five days before he was killed and robbed and beat him with a gun.

Prosecutors say Robinson was charged with attempted murder after cutting an investigator on the neck with a razor after his murder arrest.
