No bond for teenager accused in North Charleston murder

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A teenager arrested in connection with a North Charleston murder didn't receive a bond Friday morning.

Police arrested 18-year-old Maurice T. Singleton Thursday afternoon and charged him with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Singleton was arrested for an incident on March 2 when police officers responded to CSX Railroad property on Bennett Yard Road where an unresponsive man, later identified as 18-year-old Vaughn McFadden, was found.

Surveillance footage from the railyard captured the sound of gunfire at 5:23 p.m. The footage also captured Singleton leaving the scene around 5:37 p.m. according to the affidavit. Charleston County court records show Singleton was given a personal recognizance bond for unlawful carrying of a firearm in 2017.
