Dan Howard Cook has been charged with murder in the death of Tina Locklear, 40, according to Marion County Sheriff Mark Richardson. Her body was found under a bridge in The Fork Community of Dillon County last Thursday.
Sheriff Richardson said Locklear was killed at a home in Marion County on Wednesday. Her body was discovered the next day by a person looking for cans near the river.
Cook was already in custody for an unrelated crime when he was named a person of interest in the case.
