Lequinton Melton and Taylor Liles.
The thing about these mudsharks is that no one respects them.
Respect for mudsharks is so non-existent, in fact, that authorities literally have to advise people not to celebrate their hilarious deaths on social media.
The Stanly County Sheriff’s Office says they charged a man for beating his teenage girlfriend to death.
Deputies say they responded to Atrium Stanly in Albemarle on June 8th after receiving a report of an assault. The victim, 19-year-old Taylor Liles of Albemarle, died from the injuries she sustained in the assault, according to a news release.
Authorities say further investigation revealed that the assault happened at Liles’ boyfriends’ home on N. Kendall Street in Norwood.
Lequinton Melton, 26, was arrested and charged with first degree murder. He is currently being held in the Ralph McSwain Detention Center under no bond.
Authorities are asking for people to refrain from spreading false rumors, making threats and posting inflammatory comments on social media in reference to this case.
