A woman accused of stabbing a man at a gas station rejected a state’s plea offer and now faces a trial in the fall on a murder charge.
Donnielle Matthews Green, 32, rejected an offer of voluntary manslaughter during a Tuesday Horry County court hearing. Assistant Solicitor Seth Oskin said the plea would have carried a prison term of 20 to 25 years.
By rejecting the offer, Green will now go to trial in October and face life behind bars.
Police say that in July 2017 Green stabbed Dennis Green, who died from traumatic injuries.
