A man charged with murdering his stepson is scheduled to appear in Superior Court Tuesday morning.
45 year-old Alton Modlin, known as Lee, is charged with murdering his stepson in Grimesland in May. The body of 25 year-old Ricky Whitehurst was found near the Modlin home. Detectives think Whitehurst was hit in the head with the wooden handle of a shovel.
Modlin was released on a $14,000 bond. The judge says the bond was set low because the family said Whitehurst had a history of violence.
