Spartanburg, South Carolina (WSPA) – A man in Spartanburg was sentenced to 18 years in prison for a deadly shooting in 2019 on Wednesday.
Brandon Arledge, 36, was found guilty of manslaughter in the shooting of Berton Dandy, 39, in Spartanberg, on January 1, 2019.
According to the Solicitors office in Spartanberg County, Arledge and Dandy exchanged Facebook Live videos and threatened to kill each other in the weeks leading up to the shooting.
According to the law firm, Arledge, who had been probated for unrelated crimes, was armed with a .40 caliber pistol in anticipation of a fight with Dandy.
Arledge and Dandy crossed the road at Camp Croft Court in Spartanberg on January 1, 2019, and the battle began.
According to the law firm, Arledge shot twice, on the left side of Dandy and behind his head. Arledge left the scene without calling 911 and threw away his weapons.
During the interview, Arledge denied being in the apartment when the victim was shot. SLED analysis confirmed that the black baseball cap found next to the victim was likely to have Arledge’s DNA. The same hat was seen in Arledge’s Facebook Live video.
Arledge will be sentenced to 85 percent imprisonment before qualifying for release.
