State agents have arrested a suspect in the death of a man found buried in woods near Blackville.
The State Law Enforcement Division announced Wednesday that 40-year-old Sammie Gerrick was charged with murder in the death last month of 40-year-old Tyrone Donaldson.
SLED agents say Gerrick killed the victim four weeks ago, buried his body, then drove Donaldson's car to a vacant restaurant parking lot.
Investigators didn't release how Donaldson died or why he might have been killed.
Donaldson was a widowed father of four. His wife died in a car wreck in 2009.
