INDIAN LAND – The Indian Land man authorities say killed his stepfather last week has died.
James Pruitt, 52, died at 5:48 a.m. Wednesday at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile said.
The sheriff’s office had been planning to charge Pruitt with murder in the May 1 shooting death of Robert Bethea, 74.
Authorities came to Bethea’s McAlpine Circle home to find Bethea on the ground and Pruitt holed up inside an outbuilding.
Bethea and Pruitt had lived on the same property, Faile said.
