SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Summerville Police say the husband of a murder suspect called 911 to report the crime.

On Wednesday, 50-year-old Carmie Nelson was charged with the murder of her roommate Jordan Lum.

Police say Nelson moved in with Lum in February at Lum's home on Angora Way in the Pines of Gahagan.

The 911 call released Thursday was made by Nelson's estranged husband Daniel, 37.

"I smelled something, she said that's just the old garbage. Then she's like oh, by the way, we got to dispose of this body," Daniel Nelson is heard telling the 911 operator.

"She said that she bludgeoned her in the head with a hammer a few times, then she sliced her neck, then she stabbed her," Daniel Nelson told the operator.

According to court affidavits, Police say Lum was killed on Monday. Daniel Nelson made the 911 call on Tuesday.

The woman's body was found in a crate in the home's garage, wrapped in blankets.

In bond court Wednesday night, Carmie Nelson told the judge she is an alcoholic and has been in rehab.

Police charged Daniel Nelson with accessory after the fact of murder for trying hide or destroy evidence. The affidavit alleges Nelson admitted to moving the body and cleaning the home. 

Both were denied bond Wednesday night. 

"I want to know she's a good person, she's a giving person," Carmie Nelson's daughter told the judge.

"Please be strong, God will take care of everything," Carmie Nelson said crying.
