Man arrested in connection with wife’s fatal shooting in Berkeley County

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) — A man who investigators said murdered his wife in unincorporated Summerville will face a judge Tuesday morning.

Authorities say on Monday, May 8 deputies found an unresponsive female lying on the driveway of McLaurin Avenue. EMS responded and determined the victim, later identified as Crystal Wiley, died prior to their arrival.

The investigation revealed that the victim and her husband, Tony Lamont Wiley, was involved in a verbal altercation which led to violence and Wiley killed. Tony Wiley later fled the scene and was found in Lincolnville late in the afternoon. He was transported to the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.

“This was an all-hands-on-deck team effort. All available resources from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office were dedicated to solving this case,” Sheriff Duane Lewis said.

During the manhunt, three public schools in the College Park area were put on an administrative lockdown out of caution after Wiley was reportedly on his way to one of the schools to pick up a student.

The lockdowns were later lifted.

We wanted to know what charges Wiley now faces. Authorities tell News 2 that they can not tell us those charges until Wiley goes through bond court. We expect that to happen sometime Tuesday.

Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury says an autopsy will be performed on Ms. Wiley.
