2 behind bars in murder of Mt. Pleasant man

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Agents with the US Marshals office tracked down a suspect wanted for the June murder of a Mt. Pleasant man.

Kenneth Allen Dyer, 33, was arrested Saturday after US Marshals tracked him to Conway. With the help of the Horry County Police Department, Dyer was taken into custody.

Mt. Pleasant police have charged Dyer with the June 21 murder of Robert M. Weir.

Police also arrested 22-year-old Shara Dawn Greene and charged her with being an accessory after the fact of murder. Both suspects are being lodged at the Charleston County Jail. They are expected to go through bond court Sunday.

Greene's bond was set at $200,000 Sunday and Dyer bond was denied.

According to police, Weir was found dead on June 21 in front of a home at 2736 Palmetto Hall Boulevard in the Dunes West neighborhood. A neighbor called 911 after seeing Weir lying face down in the yard at 6:30 a.m. According to the neighbor, Weir was last seen around 11 p.m. the night before drinking bourbon on his porch.

According to police, Weird was found with a half empty bottle of Knob Creek bourbon whiskey lying next to him. At the time, police filled out a natural death form,  but all that changed with Sunday's arrests.
