Dogwood Park murder suspect awaiting bond hearing in Berkeley County, police say

(Provided) Stephon Johnson, 24, was wanted in the murder of William Kuhn, a convenience store clerk who was found dead Sept. 18 in Dogwood Park off Liberty Hall Road.

The 24-year-old murder suspect accused of gunning down a man at Dogwood Park is awaiting a bond hearing at the Berkeley County jail, Goose Creek police say.

U.S. Marshals arrested Stephon Johnson last month in Lancaster, Calif. He was held in Los Angeles pending extradition to South Carolina.

Goose Creek police Capt. John Grainger said Johnson is currently in the custody of the Berkeley County jail. He was booked late Thursday night, charged with murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and larceny, jail records show.

Goose Creek police will serve Johnson with arrest warrants for the charges today and he is scheduled to have a bond hearing this evening, Grainger said.

Johnson is being held in connection with the Sept. 18 shooting death of 40-year-old William Marshall Kuhn, of North Charleston. Kuhn, a convenience story clerk, had been shot once in the head.

Grainger said.
