LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) - A teenager has been charged with murder in the death of a previously convicted felon whose murder conviction had been overturned by a state appeals court.

The Herald of Rock Hill (https://bit.ly/2ebnHWv) reports that 19-year-old Kenneth J. Hood is accused of fatally shooting 30-year-old Devone F. Frazier on Sunday afternoon in Lancaster.

Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Doug Barfield says Frazier was found lying in the road. It’s unclear whether Hood has an attorney.

Frazier was convicted of murder in the 2007 killing of Jermaine “Baldy” Richardson, but an appeals court overturned Frazier’s conviction in 2013 and granted him a new trial. Frazier testified he had killed Richardson in self-defense after being shot at.

It was not immediately clear whether the Sunday killing was connected to the 2007 shooting.
