NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (AP) - A coroner says the death of a South Carolina woman found in her home was a homicide.

Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said in a news release that an autopsy Tuesday in Newberry showed that 20-year-old Melissa Clary died from blows to her head and strangulation.

Sheriff's deputies were called to a home in North Augusta shortly before 5 p.m. Monday. Clary was pronounced dead at the scene.

Carlton said Clary was found by her mother, who reported serious injuries.

No arrests have been reported.
