ANDREWS, SC (WCSC/AP) - Authorities say they have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of an Andrews woman.

Andrews Mayor Rodney Giles said investigators arrested 32-year-old Carnell Kennedy early Wednesday after 31-year-old Yvonne Holmes was found dead in her apartment on Clair Street.

Georgetown County Coroner Kenny Johnson said Holmes was shot several times late Tuesday.

Mayor Giles said investigators believed Kennedy and Holmes were previously in a relationship.

Kennedy was being interviewed by investigators late Wednesday morning.  He has not been charged with a crime.

SLED is also involved in the investigation.

An autopsy was scheduled late Wednesday morning at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
