EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A woman is dead and her boyfriend has been charged after a manhunt that ended with the help of Easley Police on Tuesday.

According to Lt. Sheila Cole with the sheriff's office, the incident began when deputies were called to Stay Lodge off Pearman Dairy Road for a domestic incident. 

When they arrived, they found a woman who had been struck by a car and the man involved had left the scene, according to Cole.

The woman was taken to the hospital with severe injuries, Cole said.

A be-on-the-lookout was issued for a vehicle the man was driving and was spotted a short time later in Easley, Cole said. 

Deputies responded with K-9s and their helicopter after the man fled from Easley police on foot.

He was located and taken into custody near Smithfield Country Club with the help of a K-9.

Cole identified the suspect as 31-year-old Kyle Christopher Hand. She said a magistrate judge charged him with violating probation, grand larceny and hit and run involving great bodily injury at this time.

The last charge was upgraded to hit and run resulting in death following the death of the victim. 

Cole said the case remains under investigation and more charges are pending. Hand was brought into the Anderson County jail Wednesday.

On Thursday, he was denied bond for both the grand larceny and hit and run charges.

Deputy coroner Charlie Boseman identified the victim as 39-year-old Carol Marie Rodenski, of Anderson.

He said she died from blunt force trauma to the head from being hit by the car.

Her death is classified as a homicide, Boseman said.
