A man has been jailed for life after killing a 21-year-old student who mistook his car for her Uber ride.
A judge has on Tuesday, 27th July, 2021 sentenced Nathaniel Rowland to life in prison for the murder of Samantha Josephson, a University of South Carolina student who was brutally killed in March, 2019 after mistakenly getting into a car she thought was her Uber outside a Columbia bar. Judge Clifton Newman called it the most severe murder case he's ever seen. He remarked on Rowland being emotionless and remorseless prior to handing down his sentence.
It took just over an hour for a jury in the US state of South Carolina to convict Nathaniel Rowland of abducting and murdering Samantha Josephson.
Once she was inside the vehicle, Rowland turned on the child locks, meaning the doors could only be opened from the outside, effectively trapping Ms Josephson.
Her body was found covered with 120 stab wounds, cuts and other injuries, dumped in woodland about 65 miles from the city.
Ms Josephson had been due to graduate from the University of South Carolina and go on to law school with a full scholarship.
Can someone attribute this to the influence of hard drugs? Perhaps, little Love, little Sympathy and little patients could have prevented all this.
