LANCASTER COUNTY, SC (WBTV) -

Two people arrested for murder were planning to rob their victim ahead of time, according to the Lancaster Police Department.

The incident began on Saturday, January 26, just after 9:30 p.m. when officers responded to an area near St. Paul Street to a report of gunfire. The officers found nothing in the area, but were alerted a short time later that a gunshot victim had arrived at the Springs Memorial Hospital Emergency Room, the report states.

The victim, Kevisis Emmanuel Anthony, 32, of Kershaw, was flown to Carolinas Medical Center. He passed away two day later as a result of his injuries.

On Monday, February 11, the LPD announced the arrests of Ketta Tomaka Evans, 34, and David Jamarcus Stalk, 23, for crimes in connection with Anthony's death.

Police told WBTV their investigation revealed that Anthony was the intended target of a robbery, planned out by Evans and Stalk.

Evans, who knew Anthony, told Stalk she believed Anthony would have money and other valuables in his possession. Evans then lured Anthony to her home, where Stalk attempted to rob him with a handgun, police said.

Anthony tried to run, at which time Stalk fired several times at him, striking him once in the back of the head. Stalk left the area on foot, but was the only person to call and report the shooting, the report states.

Evans and her son took Anthony inside the home and attempted to treat his wound, before taking him to the Emergency Room a short time later in his own vehicle.

Stalk was charged with murder, attempted armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Evans was charged with murder and attempted armed robbery.

Both remain in the Lancaster County Detention Center with their bonds being currently denied.
