Spartanburg County deputies have charged a woman with murder after a man's body was discovered on her property.

According to reports, deputies responded to the 1200 block of McSwain Road due to a citizen call for a welfare check.

Deputies charged Amy Nicole Taylor, 32, with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Taylor and Sprouse reportedly lived together at the home where the crime occurred, according to deputies.

Spartanburg County Coroner Charles Clevenger said that Spouse died after being shot in the neck, but had also suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

On Monday the Sheriff's Office confirmed Sprouse was Taylor's boyfriend.

She is currently being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center. Her preliminary court hearing is scheduled for May 18 at 9 a.m.
