GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man killed his friend in Greenwood before going to his Abbeville home and shooting himself.

Abbeville County Coroner Ronnie Ashley says 46-year-old Charles Ray Belcher killed his friend, Felicia Yvette Rayford, in Greenwood, then went home and killed himself.

Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox said Rayford was found at her home Tuesday morning, dead from a gunshot to the head.

Ashley says Belcher had been found dead in his yard at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Deputies say Belcher called his brother and another woman and confessed he had shot Rayford.

Relatives said they knew of no problems between Belcher and Rayford.
