Former Edgefield County Investigator Indicted for Murder

web posted May 22, 2014

AIKEN A former Edgefield County Sheriff's Investigator, Robin Newton Herndon, 40, has been indicted on the charge of murder in the shooting death of her live-in boyfriend, 31-year-old Christopher Rowley, at the couple's home on Sudlow Lake Road last November. Herndon was initially charged with voluntary manslaughter and was released on bond. An Aiken County Grand Jury handed down the indictment on the higher charge of murder just recently.

Herndon is expected to have to be booked on the new charge and face a new bond hearing.

As Edgefield Daily reported at the time, the shooting took place around 2 pm Wednesday, November 6, 2013. Aiken County deputies arrived and found Rowley sitting in a chair and Herndon trying to perform CPR. Rowley was transported to the Trauma Center in Augusta where he was pronounced dead around 3 pm. Herndon was taken into custody and transported to the Aiken County Detention Center.

At the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office Herndon was the criminal sexual conduct investigator covering child molestations and sex crimes.

Prior to coming to the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office she worked for Lexington County and the Probation Office in Aiken, where she was employed at the time of the shooting, sources stated. After leaving the ECSO she went to work as an investigator for SLED.
