MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Funeral arrangements have been made for the Moncks Corner woman authorities say was shot and killed Friday, moments before the shooter turned the gun on himself.

Cox will be laid to rest Tuesday. Her funeral will be at the Dial-Murray Funeral Home at 11 a.m. Her visitation is set for Monday night from 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home.

According to investigators, 61-year-old Charles Boyette approached 44 year-old Mary-Ann Cox late Friday afternoon and shot her before shooting himself outside the South Coast Community bank on East Main Street.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office and SLED say Boyette was a supervisor in the SLED Intelligence Department assigned in Charleston.

Last Monday, the sheriff's office received a complaint by Cox regarding allegations of an assault/incident involving Boyette. Cox told deputies that she had a relationship with Boyette for over a year and ended it on July 4. She said that Boyette was extremely unhappy about the breakup.
