ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man has been arrested and charged with shooting and killing a woman.

Local media outlets reported that 31-year-old Zachary Earl Powell of Williamston has been arrested in the shooting death early Thursday.

Anderson County sheriff’s deputies say 39-year-old Crystal Marie Kuykendall of Dacusville died after she was shot in the head. Kuykendall’s body was found in a ditch in the southern part of the county.

Anderson police arrested Powell Thursday afternoon.

Officials said Kuykendall was driving a pickup with Powell and another woman as passengers. Sheriff Chad McBride says the other woman was not hurt. McBride says there had been an argument before the shooting.

It was not known if Powell has an attorney.
