CONWAY, S.C. — Horry County Police have charged a Conway man with murder after the body of another man was found in the yard of a home earlier this week.

Authorities tell local media outlets that 31-year-old Joshua Devon Gaston was charged Thursday in the slaying of 60-year-old Albert Joseph Jamison Jr. of Horry County.

Jamison was found in the yard of a home Wednesday. The coroner says Jamison died of a blow to the head.

It was not immediately clear if Gaston had an attorney.
