3 charged in assault on disabled SC veteran

Posted: Updated:

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Three people have been charged - including the victim's granddaughter - in a home invasion that resulted in the shooting and wounding of a disabled Vietnam veteran in Rock Hill.

Area media outlets report the incident happened last Saturday and 70-year-old Wayne Whiteside remains in fair condition at Carolinas Medical center in Charlotte.

On Wednesday, York County Sheriff's deputies charged Whiteside's 21-year-old granddaughter Kaylan Elaine Whiteside with attempted murder and burglary. Authorities say 32-year-old Wolfgang William Liewald of Rock Hill and 41-year-old Ben Patrick Smith of Charlotte also face the same charges. It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys.

Wayne Whiteside served two tours in Vietnam and his home flies the Marine Corps and American flags and has other Marines regalia.
