DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Trial is scheduled to begin Monday for a man accused of killing a woman he met on a social media phone app.

Edward Bonilla is charged with murder in the death of Ashley Pegram in April of last year.

Dorchester County authorities say Pegram left home to go on a date with Bonilla after they met on a social media site called Kik.

Pegram's body was found a month later outside of Harleyville.

The solicitor's office says jury selection in Bonilla's trial is expected on Monday afternoon.
