WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) - A parole hearing has been delayed for a man convicted of killing a Lowcountry woman.

Officials with Probation and Parole say their lawyers are reviewing 53-year-old Carlos Elliott's record to see if he is in fact eligible for parole.

According to Probation and Parole officials, at least one of Elliott's convictions was out-of-state and may be cause to determine if Elliott is a subsequent violent offender and has too many priors to be eligible for parole.

Authorities say Huckabee was working at a fireworks store on Highway 63 near I-95 when she was attacked and stabbed multiple times. Investigators say Elliott also robbed the victim and stole her car.

Before she died Huckabee was able to call authorities, give them the make and model of her car and a description of the suspect.

Elliott was arrested the night of the murder.

Wednesday would have been his first chance for parole. 

Elliott was convicted before the law was changed to allow life without parole for murder.
