CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A man who pleaded guilty last fall to a Dorchester County murder pleaded guilty again Tuesday in a different murder case, this one involving the man's nephew and brother.

Naomi Nation with the Ninth Circuit Solicitor's Office confirmed Tuesday Donsurvi Chisolm, 32, pleaded guilty in Charleston County court to murdering his 14-year-old nephew, Michael Chisolm, and shooting his brother, 34-year-old Dansa Chisolm, in the face inside a Goose Creek home on Plainfield Avenue, where all three Chisolms lived, on April 1, 2010.

Dansa Chisolm, Michael's father, survived the shooting. US Marshals caught Chisolm in Los Angeles at a bus stop 13 days later, and he was turned over to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office.

At the time of the double-shooting, Donsurvi Chisolm was out on bond from a 2007 murder charge out of Dorchester County. He pleaded guilty last September to murdering 20-year-old Craig Canady four years earlier and was sentenced to life without parole.

Canady was found shot dead in a ditch along Clubhouse Road near Summerville on April 15, 2007.

Chisolm received a second life sentence in court Tuesday.
