Body found near where woman was chained

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – A prosecutor says a body was found on a South Carolina property where a woman was chained and held captive for weeks.

Prosecutor Barry Barnette spoke Friday at a court hearing for Todd Christopher Kohlhepp on a kidnapping charge.

Barnette indicated more charges were coming.

The woman and her boyfriend were missing for weeks before she was rescued alive Thursday.

Barnette said that the body found on the property hasn’t been identified.

Barnette said the victim saw the suspect shoot and kill her boyfriend.

The prosecutor said: “She told us this individual did kill him in her presence.”
