Authorities say a 24-year-old man has turned himself in to face a murder charge in the killing of a man with what appeared to be a machete during a home invasion
Charleston County deputies said in a news release that Jesus Arizmendi was charged Sunday. Officers say the case is still under investigation.
Investigators say three men forced their way into the victim’s home around 4 a.m. Saturday and started stabbing and hacking him. The attack continued outside, where the victim’s body was found. The coroner’s office has not released the victim’s name.
Deputies say a relative of the victim and a baby were also at the home, but were not harmed.
Arizmendi is being held in jail awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
