Keith Sturghill, 21, had dreams of going to medical school. Now, he is incarcerated, awaiting trial in the death of a 4-year-old boy.
When Keith Sturghill’s house burned down in 2017, he was around 16, still attending York Comprehensive High School in South Carolina.
“We spent 58 days in a motel. He said, ‘Mama, don’t you worry. Stop crying. I’m going to take care of you,'” his mother, Aiesha Rashid said.
Sturghill took a job at Kentucky Fried Chicken.
“The first week, they started talking about grooming him for management,” Rashid said. “He went to work, and he never slowed down after that.”
