The death penalty is being considered in the case against the man accused in the strangling death of a woman from Ladue who was attending Clemson University in South Carolina. 35-year-old Jerry Inman is charged in the May 26th killing of 20-year-old Tiffany Souers. Inman was arrested Tuesday near his mother’s home in Tennessee. Authorities say his DNA matches evidence found at the crime scene. In South Carolina, the death penalty becomes a possibility when prosecutors prove at least one aggravating factor along with murder. Kidnapping and criminal sexual conduct charges could be what the prosecutor needs to seek a death sentence.
