Sheriff's deputies in South Carolina have arrested a North Carolina woman and accused her of burning her husband's corpse four years ago.
The Morning News of Florence reported Marlboro County sheriff's deputies arrested 49-year-old Kathy J. Mcarthur of High Point, N.C., and charged her with desecration of human remains.
Lt. Jamie Seales said Monday the burned remains of 57-year-old L.C. David Mcarthur were found in 2006 in Bennettsville. Seales says it took several weeks for local and state investigators to identify the remains.
Investigators say the victim was killed in North Carolina and brought to Marlboro County, where his wife has friends and family. Investigators have not released a motive.
Kathy Mcarthur was being held in the Marlboro County jail. It was unclear if she has an attorney.
