Arrest made in S.C. double murder case


Agents with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) have arrested a 21-year-old for two murders outside of Hardeeville in Jasper County, which happened back in October.

Jonathan Antonio Nieves, a.k.a. “Santonio” from Estill in Hampton County, is charged with the murder of Shantay Jenkins and Bruce Specks. Their bodies were found burned beyond recognition inside of a burnt car.

Nieves is charged with two counts of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

He was taken to the Jasper County Detention Center, where he will await a Bond Hearing by a 14th Circuit Court Judge.  This case is still under investigation by Jasper County Sheriff’s Office and SLED.
