BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a South Carolina woman who was apparently killed by her boyfriend three months ago wasn’t reported missing until about a week ago.

Bennettsville Police Chief Kevin Miller says once 40-year-old Shelby Head’s estranged husband reported her missing, the case was quickly solved.

Authorities found Head’s body Thursday in a ditch covered with trees. A cause of death was not given.

Head’s boyfriend Raymond Nolan is charged with murder.

Miller says the couple had a history of domestic violence.

Investigators think Head was killed on Nov. 19, one day after she was last seen.

It wasn’t known if Nolan had a lawyer.
