COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A 21-year-old strangled a 32-year-old man during an argument on Seminole Drive, according to the West Columbia Police Department.
Police arrested Mykell Lerch on Friday and charged him with the murder of Mark Alexander Zeigler.
According to investigators, Lerch and Zeigler were arguing early Thursday morning when Lerch strangled Zeigler during the disagreement.
Officials arrived at the home later that morning and found Lerch in the front yard.
Lerch is currently being held at the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing scheduled for Saturday morning.
And although it won't be forever, neighbors like Fleming hope nothing like this happens close to home in the future.
"We just hope something like this never happens again," she said. "And we sure do feel bad for all the people involved and especially for their families because some people are hurting."
