      Mom, daughter arrested in connection with singer's death

      Irene Foster, 37, and her daughter, Kieara Foster, 17, both of Cheraw, are charged with Accessory After the Fact of a Felony in the murder of Chandler Spencer, 51.

      Spencer was found dead at his apartment on Washington Street last week in Hartsville.

      John Rubin Mitchell, 46, is charged with Murder, Grand Larceny and Petit Larceny in Chandler's death.

      Irene Foster is Mitchell's girlfriend, according to Hartsville Police Chief James Hudson.

      Hartsville Police believe the Fosters were in the company of Mitchell when he sold items stolen from the home, according to a news release from the City of Hartsville.

      Spencer performed with many R&B groups during the 1990's.

      His stage name was Omar Chandler.

      His website says he was on the verge of a comeback before his death.

      A bond hearing will be held for Foster and her daughter Wednesday morning.

      Mitchell remains at the Darlington County Detention Center without bond.
