According to Emanuel County Sheriff Jeffrey Brewer, Givens is the second suspect arrested for the death of McGuire and has been charged with three counts of violation of street gang terrorism and prevention, two counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Givens was transported to the Emanuel County Courthouse for his first appearance hearing last week and is currently being held without bond.
