Woman is killed, boyfriend is charged
A Lady’s Island woman was killed on Oct. 29, and her boyfriend is being charged with murder.
Just after midnight on Oct. 29, Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to Little Capers Road on Lady’s Island on a report of a female gunshot victim.
Upon their arrival, deputies found Eulia Moon, 47, had been shot while sitting inside a vehicle outside of 44 Little Capers Road.
Moon’s boyfriend, Jamie Robinson, 44, had fled the area prior to their arrival. Emergency medical services arrived and transported Moon to Beaufort Memorial Hospital, where physicians decided she should be flown to the Medical University of South Carolina for further treatment.
While the investigation was still unfolding on Little Capers Road, emergency dispatch received a call that Robinson was at a residence on Sams Point Road.
Sheriff’s deputies and investigators immediately responded to the Sams Point Road residence, where they located and detained Robinson.
According to the sheriff’s office, he was interviewed by investigators and provided an account that contradicted evidence found at the scene on Little Capers Road and statements from other witnesses.
Following his interview, Robinson was arrested on charges of attempted murder and was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center.
A short time later, the Beaufort County Coroner’s Office said Moon had died as result of the gunshot wound while at MUSC.
Charges against Robinson were then upgraded to murder.
Anyone with information regarding Moon’s death is urged to contact Staff Sgt. Adam Zsamar at 843-255-3408 or CrimeStoppers 1-888-CrimeSC to remain anonymous and for a possible reward.
