Police arrest fourth suspect in South Hill murder

SoVaNow.com / May 24, 2013
A fourth suspect has been indicted in the murder of Markee McKnight, a La Crosse man found dead May 11 at the Quail Ridge subdivision in South Hill.

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Department arrested the suspect, William Thomas Patton Jr., 24, Tuesday at his home in the Town of La Crosse. He is currently being held at the Meherrin River Regional Jail satellite location in Boydton.

No bond has been set and the suspect is awaiting an arraignment hearing.

The case remains under investigation and witnesses continue to be interviewed, police said.

Two brothers, 23-year-old Terrell A. Baskerville and 27-year-old Detric J. Baskerville, both of South Hill, were earlier charged with mur¬der in connection with McKnight’s death. Also facing a single charge of felony murder is 30-year-old Shameka Baskerville, a resident of S. Thomas Street, South Hill.

Deputies responded to the scene of the crime at Quail Hollow Road on May 11 after receiving a complaint that a fight had broken out in the area. They discovered McKnight at the end of Quail Hollow Road, severely beaten. He died of blunt force trauma, according to Mecklenburg Sheriff Bobby Hawkins.

Anyone with in¬formation about the incident is encouraged to call the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office at 434-738- 6171 or Mecklenburg County Crime Solvers at 1-877- 676-TIPS.
