GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Deputies say a 28-year-old man has been charged with kidnapping, rape and murder in the death of a woman whose burned body was found three months ago in Greenville County.

An arrest warrant said Markius Yeargin killed 34-year-old Henrietta Crawford sometime between Oct. 20 and Nov. 6, when the woman’s burned remains were found by a hunter in woods behind a Waffle House near Interstate 85.

Deputies said in a news release that Yeargin was connected to Crawford’s death through two other rape and kidnapping cases that court records show he was arrested on in November.

Arrest warrants did not indicate exactly what linked Yeargin to Crawford’s death. He is in jail awaiting a bond hearing.
