CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) - Kershaw County deputies say a 48-year-old man convicted several times of criminal domestic violence has shot and killed his girlfriend

Sheriff Jim Matthews said in a news release that deputies checking on a call about gunshots at a Camden motel around 4:30 a.m. Sunday saw Therine McKeever leaving a room.

Matthews says deputies found a gun in McKeever’s pants and he told them he might have shot his girlfriend.

Authorities say Presis Prescott was found dead in the room from a gunshot to the face.

Matthews say McKeever told deputies he had been arguing with Prescott for over a year.

McKeever is charged with murder. It wasn’t known if he had an attorney.

The sheriff says McKeever has a criminal record going back to 1984, including several assault charges.
