WOODRUFF, S.C. (AP) -The man arrested after a woman was found chained on his property in rural South Carolina has been charged with multiple counts of murder.
The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s website on Sunday says Todd Kohlhepp faces four counts of murder and a single kidnapping charge. A bond hearing has been set.
Sheriff Chuck Wright says Kohlhepp confessed Saturday that he was the shooter who killed four people at a motorcycle shop in 2003. Wright says Kohlhepp also showed law enforcement officers Saturday the gravesites of two of his other victims buried on his 95-acre property near Woodruff.
That’s in addition to the body found Friday at the site. Wright and Coroner Rusty Clevenger identified that victim as 32-year-old Charles Carver, the boyfriend of the woman found in a locked metal container Thursday.
Wright says “God answered our prayers” in solving the 13-year-old cold case.
The sheriff says it’s possible more bodies will be uncovered.
