A judge has denied bond for a man charged in connection with the alleged murder of a Clemson student who was arrested last week in Toccoa.

18-year-old Lester Devaria Mosley, Jr. of Central, South Carolina was arrested last Friday, December 21, in Stephens County.

Mosley, Jr. is charged in the death of 23-year-old Clemson student Steven Gregory Grich. Authorities said Grich was shot and killed in a Central, South Carolina subdivision on December 8 during an alleged home invasion and robbery.

Mosley, Jr. is the fourth person charged in connection with the case.

24-year-old Jaron Bradley Dalton of Six Mile, South Carolina, 19-year-old Jordan Charles Dalton of Central, South Carolina and 19-year-old Bernard Kadeen Ramsey, also of Central, South Carolina, were all arrested previously.

They are charged with murder, armed robbery, burglary first degree, and the possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Authorities allege that the group intended to rob the deceased victim’s roommate of what they believed to be a large amount of marijuana, but authorities say only a few grams of marijuana were actually taken.
