Man charged with murder in Lancaster found guilty


LANCASTER COUNTY, S.C. - A man was found guilty Friday night of murder, according to Lancaster County officials.

David Stalk, of Lancaster, was charged in the January 2013 slaying of Kevisis Anthony. Police said Anthony went to a Springs Memorial Hospital Emergency Room suffering from a gunshot wound. The 32-year-old was flown to Carolinas Medical Center and died of his injuries on Jan. 28.

Stalk was arrested with Ketta Tomaka Evans and charged with the crimes in connection with Anthony's death. Police said Evans and Stalk devised a plan to rob Anthony after Evans told Stalk she knew Anthony and would have money and valuables in his possession.

During the robbery at Evans' home, police said Anthony was shot in the back of the head when he tried to run. Police said Stalk fled the scene and called police to report the shooting. They said Evans and her son first tried to treat Anthony's wound but then took him to the hospital.

Stalk was charged with murder, attempted armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Evans was charged with murder and attempted armed robbery.

Stalk was sentenced to 45 years. The trial ended late Friday night after a week-long trial.
