Police: SC man kills woman in violent sex assault

May 30, 2011 6:24:00 PM - thestate.com
Greenville County deputies say a woman was killed at a home in Greer after a violent sexual assault.

Investigators arrested 50-year-old James Rushton on Monday and charged him with murder in the death of 33-year-old April Dawn Smith.

Deputies responding to a 911 from Rushton's Greer home around 5 a.m. Sunday found him giving CPR to Smith.

Investigators say Rushton told them he picked up Smith on Saturday night after she argued with her boyfriend, and she must have suffered a drug overdose.

But authorities say an autopsy Monday found she had been killed during a violent sexual attack.
