Man accused of killing three members of a Timmonsville family now jailed in another county

(J Reuben Long)

Antwain Adams, who is accused of killing three members of a Timmonsville family last month, has been moved from the Florence County Detention Center to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, according to Chief Deputy Glen Kirby with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

Kirby said Adams was moved because there are some people incarcerated at the Florence County Detention Center that knew the victims very well and some members of the Florence County Sheriff's Office are related to the victims.

He added they thought it best to go ahead and move Adams.

Adams is charged with three counts of murder in the deaths of 39-year-old Cheresse Lutricia Jackson and her daughters 12-year-old Breyanna Priscilla Jackson and 14-year-old Nykerria Shanyia Jackson.

He's also charged with two counts of attempted murders in the shootings of Jacksons' 43-year-old husband and 8-year-old daughter.
