Columbia Police Chief W. H. ‘Skip’ Holbrook announces the arrest of a 41-year-old man in connection with the 2018 shooting death of a female on Calk Street.
Shortly before 2:00 p.m. today, Kenneth Antwone Feaster was charged with Murder, Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime, and Possession of a Firearm by Person Convicted of a Violent Felony.
Feaster was already housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC) on charges of Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon for an unrelated Richland County Sheriff’s Department (RCSD) case.
In the CPD investigation, Feaster is accused of fatally shooting 50-year-old Angela Lee Young at the 3000 block of Calk Street on December 9, 2018. A citizen found her body and called 9-1-1.
During the course of the investigation, CPD investigators determined that Feaster and Young appeared to be acquaintances and argued moments before the shooting.
All persons arrested/charged are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.
