Defense expected to begin their case Wednesday in 2015 Mother's Day murder trial

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Defense attorneys for the 18-year-old facing a murder charge in the shooting death of a mother of three on Mother's Day in 2015 are expected to take up the case as early as Wednesday afternoon.

Kenneth Robinson faces charges in the shooting death of Kedena Brown.

Brown was struck by gunfire while driving her Chrysler 300 in the area of Ashley Phosphate and Northwoods Boulevard early on the morning of May 10, 2015.

One of the people who testified Tuesday afternoon was Kelly Green, who was also charged in connection to this case a little more than a week ago. Green also faces four attempted murder charges but testified that he entered a proffer agreement with the solicitor's office to provide details about this case in hopes of getting a better chance with his charges.

Green says he was involved in the high-speed chase of a Chrysler 300 in the Dorchester Waylyn neighborhood of North Charleston.

While he is testifying against a former friend, he says, in the long run, it will help him.

"The main reason I came up here and not plead the fifth is because this is the only opportunity I have to leave my old lifestyle behind," Green said. "I come up here and I testify, then I'm a snitch. I can't go back to my lifestyle. So this is going to make me do better."

According to prosecutors, this is Green's second proffer agreement with the Solicitor's Office.

Green said between the first and the second agreement someone tried to shoot him, which he believes is because he talked about this case.

Police said they believe Brown's car was mistaken for a similar car involved in a shootout that began in the area of Lawrence Street and Constitution Avenue.
