HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A 20-year-old Conway man was convicted Friday in a deadly 2020 shooting that left a 19-year-old dead, according to the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office.

Tronahz Whittington, 20, was convicted of murder for the death of Jamie Johnson, 19, on Sept. 12, 2022, according to the solicitor’s office. Judge Steven DeBerry sentenced Whittington to 45 years in prison.
