Stephen Flood

Former Horry County deputy Stephen Flood is accused of causing the deaths of two mental health patients, Nicolette Green and Wendy Newton. He is charged with two counts of reckless homicide and two counts of voluntary manslaughter. Flood and another former deputy, Joshua Bishop, were transporting Green and Newton to behavioral health centers in Darlington and Lancaster in a prison transport van in September 2018, when it was swept away by floodwaters in Marion County. Flood and Bishop were able to escape, but Green and Newton were locked in the back of the transport van and could not escape.
