South Carolina couple arrested for ignoring ‘tortured cries’ when nephew killed pregnant ex


Michael Burnett, 43, and Melissa Burnett, 49, were identified by the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office on Monday as the uncle and aunt of Tyler Wilkens, 21, who has been accused of bludgeoning Clarissa Winchester, 22, to death.

It was gathered that the South Carolina couple has been arrested after ignoring the ‘tortured cries’ of a 22-year-old pregnant woman being ‘bludgeoned to death’ in their home by their nephew.

Wilkins was arrested and charged with kidnapping and murder on November 10, after the lifeless bodies of Winchester and her newborn baby were found in the Greenville County home

It was confirmed that the Burnetts ‘were in the house at the time of the brutal assault’ but ‘failed to act, call 911, or provide any other assistance,’ even as Winchester screamed for help, according to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators said earlier this month that they’re also eyeing Wilkins in relation to the disappearance of Jorden Nebling, a 19-year-old woman last seen October 10 2020.

Sheriff’s office investigator Blake Wolfe told The State that Nebling was last seen being picked up by an ex-boyfriend.

Nebling’s stepmother, Mary Tucker, identified the ex-boyfriend as Wilkins in comments to Fox News.

“In my heart, I think he did something to her,” she said.
