A husband killed his wife, and step daughter who was several weeks pregnant

Anthony Gathers, 38, told dispatchers he had fatally stabbed his wife and stepdaughter in the driveway of their home in Goose Creek, SC.

“I don’t want to admit it. I just killed my wife and my stepdaughter,”

Anthony said.

Anthony was arrested at his home in Nov. 2019. He was charged with two counts of murder, two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime and one count of death or injury of child in due to commission of a violent crime.

The County Coroner identified the victims as Lorice Gathers, 38, and Shanique Hills, 22.

The stabbings took place after Anthony says he discovered text messages between his wife and her ex-boyfriend.

Deputies responding after the 911 call at 5:03 a.m. said they discovered both victims in the driveway of the home. Shanique was taken to an area hospital, where doctors determined she was over 15 weeks pregnant. The unborn child died in the incident too.

“Please tell them just put me in handcuffs and don’t draw any weapons. I’m unarmed. I admit to this.”

Gathers said on the call.
