BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A North Charleston man has been sentenced to life without parole for killing his girlfriend. 

A jury found Edward Nelson guilty of the 2016 murder of 38-year-old Shonda Davis. 

Authorities say Nelson fled Moncks Corner police before he was captured in Berkeley County in October 2016.

On October 15, 2016, police responded to a reported assault at an apartment in the 100 block of Bradley Road in Moncks Corner. 

Investigators located Davis who had received several cuts over her body from a knife.  

She was rushed to Trident Hospital where she later died.
