BAMBERG, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a man charged in the death of a Bamberg County store clerk is under observation after trying to kill himself.
Sheriff Ed Darnell told the Times and Democrat of Orangeburg that 20-year-old Michael Daniels used a broken light bulb to cut his neck. Darnell says Daniels has been taken to a mental health facility in Columbia for observation.
Authorities say Daniels went into a convenience store in Olar on Nov. 1, killing 19-year-old Alicia Dyches and wounding another employee and a customer.
Dyches' father says Daniels harassed his daughter in the weeks before the killing.
Daniels screamed profanities at Dyches' sister during a Nov. 3 hearing, moments before a judge denied him bond.
