Todd Brown has been charged with murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and burglary. The woman’s name has not been released.
Deputies responded to a 911 call around 7:20 a.m. at her home on the 500 block of Pine Street in Warrenville, where they found her in the front yard with a gunshot wound, according to an Aiken County sheriff’s new release.
She was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center where she died.
Witnesses told deputies that Brown kicked in the front door. The couple got into a physical and verbal fight that led outside, where shots were fired.
Brown left the scene prior to deputies arriving, but was later arrested.
