Man accused of keeping woman chained charged in 2003 killings
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.
