Ronicilette Joshanna Alexander, 19, of Camden, whom Camden Police Department (officers) arrested on attempted murder and reckless driving charges in mid-April, was released on a $50,000 personal recognizance bond on July 1. Under a personal recognizance bond, Alexander did not need to put up any money to be released. However, if she fails to appear in court, or otherwise violates the terms of the bond, Alexander would have to come up with the $50,000.

Meanwhile, her cousin and co-defendant, Jameal Rubion Alexander, 24, also of Camden, remains at the Kershaw County Detention Center with bond denied.

The terms of Ronicilette’s bond include having no direct or indirect contact with her cousin, or the victims and their families.

CPD officers arrested the Alexanders on April 15 and 16 in connection with an April 10 shooting incident near the intersection of Gordon and 18th streets in Camden. On April 10, dispatchers received reports of shots fired and that one suspect -- Jameal Alexander -- was hanging out of the window of a light blue Toyota Rav-4 shooting at a red Dodge Challenger while his cousin -- Ronicilette Alexander -- drove the Rav-4.

Several days later, on the night of April 15, officers took Ronicilette Alexander into custody following a traffic stop. In what appeared to be an odd attempt to disguise herself, she had dyed her hair teal on one side and a reddish pink on the other, and officers surmised that she might have been trying to leave the area to avoid arrest.

Officers arrested Jameal Alexander around noon the next day, April 16, after his mother arranged to have him meet with a county deputy near I-20 Exit 98. The deputy arrested him and immediately took him to CPD headquarters.

There do not appear to be any further court dates scheduled for either of the Alexanders.
