Man charged in triple slaying in Charleston County

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Authorities have released the identities of two women and a girl killed in a triple slaying in rural Charleston County.

The Charleston County Coroner’s office identifies the victims as 55-year-old Betty Mungin, 29-year-old Alexis Mungin and 8-year-old Armani Mungin. The coroner’s office says that Alexis Mungin was pregnant.

Authorities have charged 23-year-old Kenneth Ancrum of Ravenel with three counts of murder, a count of attempted murder and a count of possessing a firearm during commission of a crime. Deputies say the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute. A bond hearing was set for later Wednesday.

Charleston County Deputy Coroner Sheila Williams says autopsies will be performed on the victims later Wednesday.

The shootings occurred Tuesday afternoon at a mobile home park about 20 miles west of Charleston.

A fourth woman was hospitalized with a leg wound but officials say the wound is not life-threatening. A 4-month-old child was found unharmed in a mobile home where the three dead women were found.
