MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A 39-year-old North Charleston man has been sentenced to six years in prison for the strangulation death of a Mount Pleasant man two years ago.
Kenneth Dyer was sentenced in Charleston Tuesday morning. According to court officials, Dyer's sentence was a negotiated plea. Dyer had pleaded guilty in April to involuntary manslaughter in the death of 43-year-old Robert Weir.
According to an affidavit, on June 21, 2011, Dyer strangled Weir to death at his home on Palmetto Hall Boulevard in the Dunes West neighborhood.
Weir's body was found in the grass in front of his home by a neighbor. Prosecutors said the scuffle stemmed from a disagreement over money owed to an escort service.

Shara Dawn Greene was also arrested by investigators. Greene was allegedly present at the time of the murder and witnessed Dyer strangle Weird, according to a court affidavit.
The affidavit also states that Greene watched Dyer either destroy or attempt to destroy evidence and because she did not come forward with information about the murder, she was also charged.
