The man accused of shooting two women and a girl to death in Ravenel has been indicted on additional murder charges for the unborn twins one of the women was carrying.
A Charleston County grand jury Wednesday returned the indictments against 23-year-old Kenneth Lamar Ancrum, 9th Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said.
“These additional murder charges are regarding the unborn children victims ... who were in utero and viable when their mother was murdered,” Wilson said in a news release. She credited the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office for the work in securing all of the indictments in the quintuple homicide.
Ancrum is accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend’s grandmother, niece and sister, who was pregnant with twins, May 17 at the Mungins’ home at the Ravenel Mobile Home Park, 5360 Savannah Highway. Killed were Betty Mungin, 55; Armani Mungin, 8; and Alexis Mungin, 29.
Ancrum also faces a count of using a firearm in a violent crime, kidnapping and attempted murder in the shooting of his girlfriend, Quiwanna Mungin, 27, who survived the ordeal.
With the unborn children’s deaths, the total number of homicides recorded this year in the tri-county area rose to 36. Seven have been slain in unincorporated parts of Charleston County.
