Murder Suspect Back in Aiken from California
A murder suspect captured last week in California is back home and being held in the Aiken County Detention Center.
Maurice Lamont Council, 20, was booked back into the Aiken County jail today, according to jail records. The Aiken County Sheriff's Office hired a transport service to fly the suspect back to the South Carolina.
He was on the county's Most Wanted list for months, sought for the August 2009 shooting death of 16-year-old James Collin on T & S Drive. Mr. Council is charged with murder, assault and battery with intent to kill and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
Details of his capture: Officers in Hesperia, Calif., responded to a call at a local hotel and found Mr. Council. According to news reports, he was busted after the jealous husband of Mr. Council's alleged lover caught the two at a Motel 6 in San Bernardino County and notified authorities.
That's his newest mugshot above, which was taken today.
