Greenville County deputies have announced they have made a third arrest in connection to the brutal robbery and beating of the Willis family last September.

Investigators arrested 38-year-old Jermaine Bernard Williams at 4 a.m. Saturday. 

Williams had been previously arrested on marijuana charges during the November 7 search warrants related to the W.E. Willis incident. 

Though there were no charges immediately associated with the robbery and kidnapping, new information found this morning led investigators to establish probable cause. 

Williams is being charged with the following: 

  • Burglary 1st degree
  • Assault and Battery 1st Degree
  • 2 counts of Kidnapping
  • Arson 3rd degree
  • Criminal Conspiracy
  • Grand Larceny over $10,000
  • 2 counts of Armed Robbery

Williams will appear in bond court Saturday afternoon.

Deputies announced Thursday that two men had been arrested in connection to the kidnapping.
