SC man stabbed to death with butcher knife at home

WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Investigators are trying to figure out who killed a South Carolina man with a butcher knife in his home.

Lexington County Sheriff James Metts says 41-year-old William Adams was found dead in a pool of blood on the porch of his West Columbia house around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Investigators say Adams was stabbed in the abdomen with a butcher knife.

Coroner Harry Harman says Adams' aorta was cut and he bled to death.

Deputies say they don't have a motive or any suspects in the killing.
