NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The North Charleston Police Department say a 42-year-old man has been arrested for a killing in which the victim’s body was found at a hotel.

Authorities arrested Corey Arthur White on charges of murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Charleston County Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal identified the victim as Koshun Hightower from the Charleston area.

White’s charges stem from an investigation on Monday when officers responded to the Economy Inn on 5020 Rivers Ave. for a deceased person inside one of the rooms. When officers arrived they found the victim suffering from gunshot wounds.

A report states that through an investigation, White was identified as the suspect.

He was then arrested on Thursday.
