ELLOREE, S.C. (AP) - Deputies say a man stabbed his former girlfriend to death in front of their two young children in Orangeburg County.

Authorities said 30-year-old Omar Profit came to 32-year-old Veronica Butler’s Elloree home around 7:15 a.m. Friday and stabbed the mother of five.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said the two children Profit and Butler had together were in the home, but were not hurt. Butler’s other three children were at school.

The sheriff says Profit hid from deputies for about two hours before he was arrested.

Profit is charged with murder and remains in jail awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
