Bond denied for Berkeley County man accused of killing girlfriend

Bond was denied Friday night for a 59-year-old Berkeley County man accused of killing his girlfriend.

Lee Dell Bradley was extradited from North Carolina to Berkeley County Thursday night to face a murder charge after US Marshals arrested him in Charlotte on Tuesday.

An arrest warrant for Bradley was issued last Friday, the day after the body of his girlfriend, Frances Lawrence was found in her home.

Bradley had initially been named a person of interest in the case, and deputies said he may have left the scene driving Lawrence's vehicle which was reported missing from the residence, according to sheriff's office spokesman Dan Moon.

Deputies responded shortly after 9 a.m. last Thursday to Lawrence's home on Bush Lane in the Sheep Island area of Summerville where the woman's body was found. Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury said Lawrence died of a single stab wound to the chest.

Lawrence's sister, Darlene Walker, says Lawrence hadn't shown up for work since Tuesday and believes Lawrence was killed some time after coming home from work.

"I knew something wasn't right, I just couldn't put my finger on it, and I mean, this happened right under our nose and we didn't even know it," Walker said.
