ST. HELENA ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - The body of the 19-year-old nephew of a man found shot to death nearly two weeks ago has been found.

Beaufort County deputies said in a news release that a body found on St. Helena Island on Saturday has been identified as Chaz Blanding. An autopsy determined he died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Blanding was last seen leaving his home Nov. 21 with his uncle, 25-year-old Robert Blanding, whose body was found on Lady’s Island on Nov. 22.

Deputies say a 16-year-old and 18-year-old Channon Preston Jr. who were charged earlier with murder in Robert Blanding’s death now face similar charges in Chaz Blanding’s killing.
