LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County deputies have arrested a man and a woman accused of fatally shooting two men in separate incidents late last year.
Allon Triante Adams, 22, and Cady Elise Keener, 19, are charged with two counts of murder, armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and the desecration of human remains, according to arrest warrants.
“Based on evidence and the information detectives have gathered during interviews, Adams and Keener shot a man to death during an armed robbery in the 600 block of Kestrel Drive in Leesville in late November,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Adams and Keener shot another man to death while trying to rob him Dec. 30 on Parrish Road in Leesville.”
Koon said the victim in the Nov. 28 shooting has been identified as Devon Tricoche. The man killed in the Dec. 30 shooting has been identified as Tony Etheredge Jr., according to Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher.
“Detectives have determined Adams and Keener moved Tricoche’s body from the Kestrel Drive scene and discarded it at an Edisto River boat landing in Aiken County,” Koon said. “The pair initially discarded Etheredge’s body off Parrish Road, but later dumped it in Black Creek, where investigators recovered it Friday evening. That’s what prompted the desecration of human remains charge.”
Adams, a Leesville resident, and Keener, a resident of Lexington, are in the Lexington County Detention Center after being arrested on other charges earlier this week.
“The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office has provided valuable assistance to us in the case of Mr. Tricoche’s death. Our investigations into both crimes are still open and more charges are possible,” Koon said. “We encourage anyone with information about either of these cases to reach out to us or use the Crimestoppers mobile app to share an anonymous tip that could lead to a cash reward.”
