Lanham Sentenced To Ten Years In Prison

September 30th, 2022


Chattooga County Superior Court Judge Don Thompson sentenced Renee Lanham to ten years in prison on Thursday following her conviction on two counts of giving false statements to law enforcement officers. 

Lanham had been charged with murder in the death of her husband, Eddie Lanham, but jurors were deadlocked on that charge and Judge Thompson declared a mistrial on September 14th.  The fifty-six-year-old hairdresser’s trial was delayed first by COVID-19 after her attorney fell ill.  The trial was further delayed by flooding in Summerville earlier this month.

Eddie and Renee Lanham had been married since May of 1989 until Mr. Lanham’s death in September of 2017.
