Suspect in Teen's Killing Waives Bond

Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) - The suspect charged with killing a Kershaw County teenager has waived his right to a bond hearing.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says 21-year-old Stephen Ross Kelly will stay in jail until his trial.

Last Friday, Kelly was arrested and charged with murder in the strangling death of 18-year-old Briana Rabon. Matthews says it's believed Kelly killed the young woman Tuesday night. Previous Coverage: No Motive Yet in Briana Rabon Killing

Matthews said there is no motive yet in the killing. Investigators believe he is the only person responsible for the crime.

Rabon, a 2013 graduate of Lugoff-Elgin High School, was laid to rest Sunday.
