Benefit This Week for Soldiers Who Died Defending Woman

Chapin, SC (WLTX) - A benefit concert is being held this Saturday for two Midlands soldiers who died while trying to defend a woman at a popular Lake Murray bar.

The owner of the Frayed Knot, the bar where the men died, is hosting the event in honor for Sergeant First Class Charles Judge Junior and Army Sergeant First Class Jonathan Prins. The concert will  raise money for the five children the men left behind and their family.

Lexington County deputies say back on July 24, Judge and Prins were both shot and killed by a suspect outside the business. Investigators say the suspect was involved in a fight with a woman outside the bar. Judge and Prins attempted to resolve the situation peacefully, but officers say Mills shot them.

The tribute concert will include performances by over five bands, including Shelby Raye and Cody Webb. Organizers say there will also be a hog and oyster roast beginning at 11 a.m., a boat raffle at 9 p.m., and a grand finale fireworks show.
