      Sheriff: Teen killed in mistaken retaliation

      Kymmara Randolph

      ST. MATTHEWS, S.C. (AP) - Calhoun County sheriff's deputies say a 17-year-old girl has been killed by two brothers who thought she set them up to be robbed.

      Sheriff Thomas Summers told The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg (http://bit.ly/1fmE6zk ) that 17-year-old Kymmara Randolph had nothing to do with the robbery.

      Summers says Randolph was killed shortly after she was last seen leaving an Orangeburg home with a man Feb. 13. The sheriff says investigators know where the teen was killed, but have not found where the suspects took her body.

      Deputies say the men lured Randolph from her home by saying they were taking her to a party.

      Forty-five-year-old Jerry McKnight and 32-year-old Bryant McKnight have been charged with murder. It was not known if they had lawyers.
