Lexington Teen to Stand Trial For Murder

[The State] Kierin Dennis
(The State)  The teen who stabbed a Dutch Fork High School student to death last year after a basketball game in an eatery parking lot won’t be able to avoid trial for murder.

Judge Thomas Russo has ruled that Kierin Dennis, whose lawyer had argued that Dennis was entitled to “stand your ground” immunity from prosecution in the killing of Da’Von Capers, will not get that immunity.

Dennis is charged with one count of murder and one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Dennis’ claims of being in fear of his life because Capers was supposedly trying to enter his SUV are “not credible,” Russo wrote in a 10-page legal opinion filed in the Lexington County clerk of court’s office.
