Two Women Found with Corpse Charged with Murder

Langley Patton Love the Dead

What were they doing with the corpse? We don’t want to know but police are now theorizing that the gruesome twosome killed the man, left, then came back and hung around the place with the body. Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

From WYFF:

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Two women found with a dead man in a trailer are now charged with murder.

According to Lauren’s County Sheriff’s Office, Rodney Shane Babb was shot to death early Friday morning.

The body wasn’t discovered until Saturday afternoon.

Investigators said the women now charged with Babb’s murder, 26-year-old Angela Marie Langley and 19-year-old Stacey Nacole Patton, were found with the body in an abandoned mobile home at 207 Jacqueline Lane in the Ware Shoals area.

Deputies believe the two shot and killed Babb early Friday morning inside the home, left the body, then returned to the home Saturday.

Yikes. Fox Carolina is reporting that the 32-year-old victim died after arguing over money with the pair, and the women returned to figure out a way to dispose of the body. Tragic, but at least that explanation for two murderers returning to visit the corpse of their victim doesn’t make my skin crawl.

Hmmm. A 32-year-old man has two women, one 26 and one 19, in his house who he’s arguing over money with. What ever could the motive be?

Via Crimenews2000 this Index Journal report has more details, including the fact that the almost 40-year-old had an relationship with the teen Stacey Nicole Patton:

Laurens County Sheriff Ricky Chastain said investigators think the two suspects picked the victim up Thursday night and brought him to the trailer owned by a member of Patton’s family. The victim’s car was found on Indian Mound Road in Ware Shoals, and he had possibly run out of gas.

“Some time during the night we believe they shot the victim in the head and left the scene,” Chastain said.

A .380 caliber handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, has been recovered, he added.

Friday the suspects rented a car in Greenwood and purchased cleaning supplies in Simpsonville, Chastain said. Laurens investigators received a tip on the murder Saturday morning and began surveillance on the two women, who led them to the trailer.

Chastain said the suspects were inside the trailer with the victim and the cleaning supplies when deputies arrived.

Though the motive for the murder is unclear, Chastain said the victim and Patton had a relationship.

“We’re not sure for how long, but for some time, but an off and on relationship,” he said.

Chastain said more charges are pending.

As a commenter at WYFF said while I was reading about this story, no drugs involved here!

    how come we haven’t heard anything about this- they got charged, but then what? I just thought about it yesterday and today googled the girls- this is the only “News” I find—
    LCSO arrested Angela Marie Langley Beth, Dyanna Gleaton, and Krystal Leann Medlin on Manf. Meth charges.

    Did they get charged? Was there a trial?? Anyone know?

    It takes a while for trials to get started. I just looked at the court records and it looks like there hasn’t been sentencing. In two years. And she’s out on bond cooking meth so it looks like she might skate for some reason on the murder if she got bond.

    I just read on The Index Journal site, that Stacy Patton was involved in a hit and run yesterday on her way to court to plead guilty. Why has it taken this long and what was she doing out of jail? I think this is ridiculous!!!!
