Getting involved in anything with a black – especially something like prostitution – should be treated as a suicide attempt.
A member of the 82nd Airborne accused of shooting a woman in the head, killing her at a Ocean Boulevard hotel, could soon post bond and leave jail.
But, Pvt. Chandler Dunmeyer will not be a free man and instead will go into military custody as he awaits trial.
On Wednesday, Horry County Circuit Court Judge Benjamin Culbertson granted Dunmeyer, 19, a $50,000 surety bond. Myrtle Beach Police charged Dunmeyer with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime for the January 22 killing.
Any trial on his charges is not likely to occur for at least a year.
Dunmeyer told the judge that he served about nine-months in the Army and remains active duty.
Police say Dunmeyer killed Collee Muirhead at the Beachcomber Inn and Suites at 1405 S. Ocean Boulevard in late January.
Assistant Solicitor Seth Oskin said Dunmeyer and Muirhead were involved in prostitution and he killed her following a disagreement.
