The fourth suspect in the slaying of a Clemson student has been arrested, according to Pickens County deputies.
Deputies said Friday night they arrested Lester Mosley Jr. at a motel in Toccoa. The arrest happened about 7:30 p.m. as part of a joint operation with the Pickens, Anderson, and Stephens County Sheriff's offices, along with the US Marshall's Office.
Pickens County Sheriff's Office Assistant Sheriff Tim Morgan said during the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Mosley was at the motel and moved in to arrest him.
Deputies arrested Mosley without incident, who is in the process of returning to South Carolina to face charges in the death of 23-year-old Steven Grich, Morgan said.
Mosley, 18, is the last of four suspects accused in Grich's murder. The other suspects are Bernard Ramsey, 19, Jordan Dalton, 19, and Jaron Dalton, 24. The Daltons, who are brothers, and Ramsey have been charged with murder, armed robbery, burglary first-degree and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and are being held with no bond, pending a February court date.
Investigators said the four men invaded a Smoke Rise Drive house at the Homes at Chimney Ridge earlier this month with the intent to rob Grich's roommate, believing he had a large amount of marijuana, but only a few grams were reportedly taken.
During the home invasion, deputies said Grich was shot to death.
