SC woman fatally beaten with bat

CAMDEN, S.C. — A 23-year-old man has been charged in the death of a woman authorities say was abducted from a Chesterfield County store and beaten to death in a random attack.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says a woman in her early 30s was abducted after leaving a convenience store Monday afternoon.

Matthews says the woman was assaulted and driven to Kershaw County, where she was beaten to death with a baseball bat.

Matthews says store surveillance video shows a man harassing the woman. Matthews says authorities used that video to identify a suspect and stopped him near Jefferson. Matthews says the man confessed and told authorities where to find the woman’s body.

The man was being held Tuesday on a murder charge. Names have not been released.
