Man ac­cused of keep­ing woman chained charged in 2003 killings

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A South Carolina man ac­cused of hold­ing a woman chained in­side a stor­age con­tainer was de­nied bond Sun­day after in­ves­ti­ga­tors say he also con­fessed to an un­solved quadru­ple mur­der that hap­pened 13 years ago

Au­thor­i­ties have charged Todd Kohlhepp, 45, with four counts of mur­der in the deaths of four peo­ple in 2003 at a mo­tor­cy­cle shop in Ch­es­nee. His al­leged role in those killings was un­cov­ered, au­thor­i­ties said, after the woman was found last week in a locked con­tainer on Kohlhepp’s prop­erty in ru­ral Woodruff.

Kohlhepp’s ar­rest has put to rest for lo­cal law en­force­ment and the fam­i­lies of the vic­tims a mys­tery that has haunted them for more than a decade.

Kohlhepp is also charged with the woman’s kid­nap­ping, and pros­e­cu­tors say more charges are ex­pected.
