Investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit have issued warrants on 27 year-old, Jennifer Lynn Qualls for Murder, in the death of Charles Keith Childers, which occurred on March 31st of this year. In addition, Investigators have also charged and arrested 37 year-old, Julianne Lathan with Accessory After the Fact.

After the initial call, Investigators launched an extensive and thorough investigation in which they determined the suspects had been with the victim during the night, prior to his death. At some point an altercation occurred between Childers and Qualls which led to Qualls to striking the victim multiple times with a piece of wood, inevitably causing his death. Lathan was charged with accessory after investigators learned she assisted Qualls in moving the victim’s body in an attempt to mask the crime.

Lathan has been arrested and is currently in the Greenville County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing. Qualls is currently on the run and Greenville County Investigators request that anyone with information regarding her whereabouts, to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 23CRIME.
