LEXINGTON, S.C. — Lexington County deputies say a man is now charged with murder after the victim in a Lexington shooting died.
Officers announced the upgraded charges Wednesday against 28-year-old Joseph Randolph Henry.
Investigators say he shot 25-year-old Alexis Victoria Azarigian while the two were in a car riding down Augusta Road on February 21. A passenger and the driver told deputies Henry threatened to kill the woman, then shot her.
Henry was taken into custody a short time after the shooting and charged the next day with attempted murder and possessing a weapon during a violent crime.
After Azarigian died, investigators sought new warrants against him. He's currently being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
