A 23-year-old man has been charged in the death of a woman authorities say was abducted from a Chesterfield County store and beaten to death in a random attack.
Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said Beverly Hope Melton, 30, was abducted after leaving a convenience store Monday afternoon.
According to deputies, Melton called her grandmother and told her that she was being followed and was afraid. That was the last time anyone heard from Melton.
Matthews said Melton was assaulted and driven to Kershaw County, where she was beaten to death with a baseball bat.
Her body was found in a secluded area of Kershaw County after the man, 23-year-old Nickolas Jermaine Miller, led Chesterfield County deputies to her body.
Matthews said store surveillance video shows Miller harassing Melton in the store. Matthews said authorities used that video to identify a suspect and stopped him near Jefferson.
