SC man sentenced to 40 years in prison for North Charleston shooting death

A man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after a South Carolina jury convicted him of murder in the shooting death of a man at a mobile home park.

CHARLESTON, S.C. —

A man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after a South Carolina jury convicted him of murder in the shooting death of a man at a mobile home park.

A Charleston County jury returned a guilty verdict on Tuesday against 31-year-old Kaseem Stephens of North Charleston in the 2007 shooting death of 25-year-old Sheldon Frasier.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that the jury deliberated less than three hours before returning the verdict.

Stephens had been arrested by U.S. marshals in a Brooklyn, N.Y., barbershop in early 2008. His fingerprints matched those of the suspect sought by North Charleston police.
