ORANGEBURG, S.C. — A woman has been stabbed to death in her home in Orangeburg and sheriff’s deputies have arrested a grand-nephew.
Multiple media outlets report that officers were called to the home of 74-year-old Delores Dash around 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Deputies said 25-year-old Isaiah Veazey was still on the phone with 911 operators when they arrived.
Veazey has been charged with murder. He was being held in the Orangeburg County jail. It was not clear if he has an attorney yet.
Family members said he had moved from Washington D.C. to Orangeburg to live with his great aunt last month.
Investigators said Dash’s body was found in a bedroom, wrapped in sheets. She had been stabbed several times.
Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said investigators are trying to determine a motive.
