Orangeburg County, SC (WLTX) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office arrested a suspect in the murder of an Orangeburg man.

Michael Jerome Allen, 21, was charged with murder during his first court appearance Friday.

Allen reportedly had no attorney and made no comment.

Deputies say the incident occurred at a Maedrine Street residence on December 6, where they found the 58-year-old victim seated in a chair with apparent face lacerations. An autopsy confirmed the male victim died of stab wounds.

The victim's family is expected to speak at a later hearing, according to a report.

Bond was deferred to a circuit court judge at a later date.
