An aspiring "horrorcore" rapper from California who is charged with killing his girlfriend and three others has made an appearance in a Farmville courtroom.
Richard "Sam" McCroskey smiled as he entered court Tuesday. A Sept. 20 motions hearing was scheduled.
McCroskey faces capital murder charges in the Sept. 18 deaths of his girlfriend, 16-year-old Emma Niederbrock; her parents, Presbyterian minister Mark Niederbrock and Longwood University professor Debra Kelley; and Emma's 18-year-old friend Melanie Wells of Inwood, W.Va.
The 21-year-old McCroskey met Emma Niederbrock online through their interest in "horrorcore" music, which sets violent lyrics to hip-hop beats.
