Judge denies bond again for double murder suspect in Socastee burned car case

Grand Strand Crime

A judge again denied bond for a suspect in the case of two bodies found in a burned car in Socastee last year.    

A bond hearing was held Tuesday afternoon in Horry County for Zachary Stell.

Matthew Autry and Shawn Anderson’s bodies were found last July.

The solicitor’s office said Tuesday that Stell killed the two while he was out on bond, and that he is considered the “main hand” in the killings.

Stell’s defense told the judge Tuesday afternoon that he has two kids that live in the county.         

Several of Stell’s friends and family members were also in the courtroom.
