Lela Sampson

  • A South Carolina woman arrested on attempted murder charges is the daughter of a top local prosecutor. Lela Sampson and Jakqui Stewart, both 18, are charged with attempted murder, discharging a firearm into a dwelling, criminal conspiracy and six counts of first degree assault and battery. The charges stem from a Thanksgiving shooting in South Congaree. Police say six shots were fired from a car into a house. No one was injured. Sampson is the daughter of April Sampson. She is the circuit deputy solicitor in the Fifth Judicial Circuit, which covers Richland and Kershaw counties. April Sampson declined to comment on her daughter's arrest.
