Laurens County deputies have arrested a man in a home invasion that led to the stabbing death of an 80-year-old man in his Gray Court home.
Investigators said 21-year-old Joshua Anthony Hall, of Woodruff, was charged Friday night with murder and armed robbery.
Sheriff Ricky Chastain told WYFF-TV that Hall rented a home from Charles Riddle.
Authorities say Riddle was found dead in a pool of blood by his girlfriend as she came by to take him to church June 5.
Investigators say Riddle fought with his attacker and may have tried to grab a gun before he was stabbed 18 times.
