VIDEO: Suspect turns himself in for murder of transgender woman

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A man charged with the murder of a transgender woman in July in North Charleston shot her in the face “multiple times” according to the affidavit released Monday.

Thirty-four-year-old Dominick Archield’s car was parked just down the street from the Lovey Dovey Club, the affidavit stated. As Denali Berries Stuckey walked toward the club, Archield got out of a 2013 White Dodge Charger and shot her multiple times ‘without warning or provocation’ according to the affidavit. He then fled the scene.

When Archield was questioned, he stated that he was in the area of the Lovey Dovey Club the night of the murder and arrived in a 2013 white Dodge Charger. He also told investigators that he was neighbors with Stuckey at one point and knew her.

Archield turned himself in to police on Sunday.

Police responded on July 20 to Carner Avenue after 4 a.m. to what was initially reported as a possible accident involving an automobile and a pedestrian, according to the incident report.

Responding officers found Stuckey dead on scene from a gunshot wound.
