COLUMBIA, SC (WSPA) – South Carolina Department of Corrections officials confirmed that serial killer Todd Kohlhepp is no longer in protective custody.

Kohlhepp killed Charlie Carver before holding Carver’s girlfriend, Kala Brown, captive for two months.

Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office deputies found Brown chained inside a metal storage container on land owned by Kohlhepp.

Carver’s body, along with the bodies of Megan and Johnny Coxie, were found buried on the property.

Meagan and Johnny Coxie were a married couple who authorities say disappeared in 2015.

Kohlhepp also confessed to killing four people at a Superbike Motorsport in November 2003 — Scott Ponder, Beverly Guy, Brian Lucas and Chris Sherbert.

He sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences and was also sentenced to 30 years for first-degree and 30 years for criminal sexual conduct.

As part of the plea agreement, he’s expected to spend the rest of his life in the S.C. Department of Corrections with no chance of parole.

He also can’t appeal. If he escapes, the State reserves the right to re-sentence him and seek the death penalty.
