Newberry County, SC (WLTX) - Newberry County deputies have arrested a man they say smothered and killed the mother of his child.
Officer charged 21-year-old Douglas Eugene Inman with murder.
According to deputies, Inman killed 17-year-old Allyson Taylor Greenway at her home on Broome Street Monday. Officers say a relative discovered her body.
Investigators say the two had a child together, and had what officers describe as a "tumultuous relationship." The two did not live together, and their child was not at the home when Greenway died.
"As a parent of teenage children, I simply cannot imagine the pain the victim's family is experiencing right now," said Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster in a statement. "This is a tragic situation and their entire family remains in our prayer during such a difficult time."
