LAURENS, S.C. (AP) — Officials say a body found in Laurens County was that of a missing Taylors woman.
Officials say the body found in a field last week was that of 31-year-old Myranda Dale Southern, who was reported missing Aug. 19 where she worked in Simpsonville.
Coroner Nick Nichols said Southern died from a gunshot wound to the neck.
Thirty-three-year-old Darrell Ervin Raines Jr. has been arrested and charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Laurens sheriff’s Lt. Judy Stiles says her agency is being assisted by Greenville County sheriff’s deputies and the State Law Enforcement Division.
It was unclear if Raines has a lawyer.
