Man arrested in 1997 death of SC woman

ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - A man has been arrested in the 1997 stabbing death of a South Carolina woman.

Multiple media outlets reported that 39-year-old Timothy Donya Cunningham of Anderson was arrested Wednesday in the death nearly 13 years ago. Cunningham is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Anderson police found 23-year-old Beverly Reed dead when they responded to a 911 call on May 30, 1997.

Police spokesman Randall Williams says officers recently got a tip from a confidential source.

It was unclear if Cunningham had an attorney.
