Former Greenville High School football star Lamarckus Boswell, age 31, was loved by friends and family, all of whom mourned his loss when he was fatally shot back in March of 2018.

One of those friends was Kendrick Cobb, a longtime friend of Boswell’s, who is now charged with Boswell’s murder.

On May 19 Cobb was denied bond during a hearing, but in a second hearing held on Friday, Boswell’s family had an opportunity to address the court.

And they revealed that Cobb had actually been a pallbearer during Boswell’s funeral, carrying his casket and standing beside the crying family members of the very man he himself had shot and killed.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Cobb killed Boswell after an argument inside an apartment on Landford Drive, which ended up out in the parking lot where shots were fired.

At this recent hearing, Boswell’s family wore clothing and jewelry that included pictures of the victim in his honor.

Boswell left behind three children.
