Autopsy results awaited
The State Department of Corrections awaits autopsy results this afternoon in the death of a former Oconeean on death row. Kenneth Justus was 44 years old, according to DOC spokesman Clark Newsom. And it’s routine, Newsom said, to involve the state police and medical professionals any time a prisoner dies. Originally, Justus was sent to prison for life for the killings of two people at Oconee County convenience stores in the late 1990s. In 2005, according to reports, Justus stabbed an inmate to death and, for that, was sentenced to death.
