Former WDPS Officer Officially Charged

Agents with the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) announced last week the official arrest and filing of charges against former Winnsboro Department of Public Safety officer Michael Bernard Roseboro. SLED arrested Roseboro Nov. 14. The 43-year-old former officer, of Neason Lane in Winnsboro, has been charged with attempted murder, a felony that carries up to 30 years in prison. Roseboro was booked at the Fairfield County Detention Center.

Roseboro is charged with the attempted murder of his estranged wife, whom agents say he shot outside her home on 8th Street in Winnsboro on Oct. 28. The shooting set off a manhunt that ended Nov. 1 when Roseboro shot himself in the chest as officers closed in on him at Camp Welfare off Arrowhead Road.

Roseboro’s wife, Keisha Roseboro, an administrative sergeant at the Detention Center, continues to recover from wounds she received during the Oct. 28 shooting.

The case will be prosecuted by the Sixth Circuit Solicitor’s Office, SLED said last week.
