Myrtlebeachonline.com reports police on Wednesday charged Janet Kupka with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. She has been released on $20,000 bail, according to Myrtle Beach police Capt. David Knipes said.
An investigation into Norman’s death began on Oct. 19 – five days after the 63-year-old’s death – after police received a report from hospital officials that a patient possibly was over medicated.
Norman was the owner of Norman Communications’ WNMB-AM 900 and co-owner of WVCO-FM 94.9 “The Surf.”
At the time of Norman’s death, Matt Sedota, general manager of Fidelity Broadcasting’s easy listening station simulcast on WEZV-FM 105.9 in Myrtle Beach and WGTN-FM 100.7 in Georgetown, said Fidelity sold WNMB to Norman in 2001.
“Bill was one of those guys who don’t exist anymore,” Sedota said. “He was Mr. Local Radio.”
