BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina authorities say they have a suspect but haven’t found an 8-year-old girl whose mother was found dead.

Multiple media organizations reported Sunday that 36-year-old Dwayne Bright is charged with murder and possessing a weapon during a violent crime. Ella Lowery was found dead in her Marlboro County home on Friday.

Local authorities and the FBI are still looking for her daughter, Iyana Lowery.

Marlboro County Sheriff Charles Lemon says he believes the girl was at the home when her mother was killed.
