Upstate murder suspect arrested after chase in Louisiana
UNION COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Union County Sheriff’s Office said a woman who is accused of killing her boyfriend in early September has been taken into custody.
Deputies were called to reports of an unconscious man on Prospect Corner Road on Sep. 1. Upon arrival, EMS told deputies the man was found dead on the bathroom floor.
Speaking with EMS, the Sheriff’s Office initially presumed that the death was likely due to a combination of things, most notably the amount of alcohol consumed, and underlying untreated medical conditions.
The victim was identified as 33-year-old Stanley Jones of Laurens.
Deputies said Stanley’s girlfriend, Alexis Jones, told officials that Stanley was drunk, and was refusing to come into the house. She said she was finally able to get Stanley into the house but he began to complain about being hot and went into the bathroom. Alexis stated moments later, Stanley collapsed.
Later in the investigation, deputies learned Stanley did not die from alcohol, drugs or medical conditions. Investigators said they learned that the wound on Stanley was caused by Jones and a sharp object.
A weapon was found and Jones was charged with murder.
She was apprehended in Louisiana after a vehicle pursuit. She is being extradited back to South Carolina.
