AIKEN, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man shot and killed his 71-year-old aunt after an argument in an Aiken home.
A witness told deputies about hearing 39-year-old Michael Thompson Jr. arguing with the victim Saturday night, then hearing two gunshots.
The Aiken County Coroner's Office says an autopsy will be performed Monday on Geraldine Jackson.
Thompson was arrested shortly after officers arrived. He is charged with murder and remains in the Aiken County jail. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
