Unless her case is overturned on appeal, Gregg Pickrell will be 100 years old when she finishes serving her 35-year sentence for fatally shooting 33-year-old Robert L. Demary, of Salmond Street, Camden, nearly four years ago. A jury found Pickrell guilty of murder mid-afternoon Tuesday, closing a trial that had lasted six days over a two-week period. According to a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) report dated Sept. 11, 2014, Pickrell -- now 65 and who lived on Baynard Boykin Road near Rembert at the time -- called Sumter County dispatchers who then relayed the call to Kershaw County.
