COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 40-year-old neighbor has been charged in the killing of a man whose body was found in his Richland County home.
Deputies said Holly Thompson was arrested Tuesday, the day after relatives found 71-year-old James Solomon's body. Thompson is charged with murder.
Coroner Gary Watts says Solomon bled to death after being beaten and stabbed.
Investigators say it appears Thompson and Solomon argued before he was killed. Deputies say they knew each other.
Thompson was awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn't known if she had a lawyer.
