Bond denied for South Carolina slayings suspect
WOODRUFF, S.C. - A judge has denied bond for a man charged with a 2003 quadruple slaying and more recently holding a woman captive on his property.
Todd Kohlhepp appeared before a magistrate judge in Spartanburg on Sunday and was denied bond. Magistrate Judge Jimmy Henson said a circuit court could revisit the issue of bond later.
Kohlhepp wore an orange jumpsuit and declined to speak when Henson offered him the chance to make a statement. He didn't have an attorney.
Family members of victims of the 2003 slayings were there.
Kohlhepp is charged with four counts of murder in the shooting deaths more than a decade ago at Superbike Motorsports in Chesnee. The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said in an investigative report filed Saturday that he confessed to the killings.
He is also charged with kidnapping a woman and keeping her chained on a rural property. Her rescue this week led to the break in the murder case.
