Police Chief Murder Charge-1

In a Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014 file photo, Richard Combs, left, the former police chief and sole officer in the small town of Eutawville, S.C., listens in court with his lawyer John O’Leary, in Orangeburg, S.C. Solicitor David Pascoe said in opening arguments Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 that Bernard Bailey was murdered over a broken taillight by then-Eutawville Police Chief Combs. But Combs’ lawyer O’Leary says the chief had a legitimate warrant against Bailey, and the victim turned his pickup truck into a weapon when he tried to back away as Combs tried to arrest him.
