RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 45-year-old man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his wife in Jasper County.

Jasper County deputies told media outlets that Tyrone Young was arrested Thursday afternoon, not long after his wife was killed near Ridgeland.

Deputies say the State Law Enforcement Division is helping them with the investigation, and referred to SLED to release more details. The agency has yet to release where the shooting happened or why Young killed 46-year-old Lakicia Young.
