Bond denied for man charged with 2 Colleton Co. murders, already jailed in triple-murder case

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A man who is currently incarcerated on murder charges for a 2017 triple murder in Ruffin is being charged with two more murders in Colleton County.

Kenneth Mar'keith Chisolm was denied bond Tuesday morning after he was charged with the murders of Lewis Kevin Ramsey and Julie Michelle Poston, who were shot at their Walterboro residence in the 5400 block of Sidneys Road on Oct. 28, 2016, according to Colleton County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tyger Benton.

He also had bond denied on a burglary charge which stemmed from the incident and received a $10,00 surety bond for two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Chisolm entered the home and shot Ramsey and Potson, according to the affidavit. The probable cause to charge Chisolm with the new murders came from both witness statements and video of Chisolm's vehicle leaving the area in the minutes after the crime was committed, according to the affidavit.

Poston's daughter attended Chisolm's bond hearing and had a question for him.

"The only thing I have to say and that is why? Tessa Godley said.

"I didn't do it," Chisolm replied.

After court, Godley was still angry with Chisolm.

"I'm not happy. I'm not happy especially for somebody to lie to my face. I can't deal with it," Godley said.

Chisolm's other three murder charges stem from a triple homicide in the 21700 block of Lowcountry Highway on May 16, 2017.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information on either incident to call 843-549-2211 or CrimeStoppers at 843-554-1111.
