Bail was set Wednesday for the man accused in the Summerville shooting death of a woman inside the Moonshine Saloon in December, according to court records.
Shearon Lamar Bennett, 33, of Cross is charged with murder. He's accused of the Dec. 8 killing of 32-year-old April Infinger.
Last week, Bennett's attorney requested a judge set bail. Bennett has been detained at the Hill-Finklea Detention Center in Moncks Corner since his arrest in December.
Circuit Judge Markley Dennis set his bail at $750,000. Bennett, who remained jailed Thursday, would have to post $75,000 in order to be released. If released on bail, the judge ordered he be on strict house arrest, according to court records.
Infinger had been inside the nightclub when witnesses said she was struck by a bullet as people fought outside.
Witnesses who called 911 described the brawl and told operators that a man was firing a gun. Some gave a description of the suspect.
Witnesses told the newspaper that several punches had been thrown during the fight, and that at least 10 members of a motorcycle club had chased a bar patron into the parking lot.
Meanwhile, Infinger was inside celebrating a friend's birthday, according to her friend, Aubrey Cade.
Cade said she was saying goodbye to Infinger when she heard a "pop" and watched Infinger drop to the floor. She turned and saw a bullet had come through the wall from the parking lot, Cade said.
Infinger was married and had a 13-year-old daughter, according to Cade.
