GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – A man has been charged with murder in the death of a woman whose burned remains were found in November.

The coroner previously said in a statement that a hunter found the victim’s remains near Fairmont Avenue and Melvin Drive in Greenville. Sheriff’s deputies announced Monday that 28-year-old Markius Rashad Yeargin has been charged with the homicide committed some time between Oct. 20 and Nov. 6, 2016.

Yeargin burned the body to destroy evidence, according to warrants.

Deputies say Yeargin was linked to two sexual assault cases within weeks of the murder.

Yeargin was charged with criminal sexual conduct in those incidents in November 2016.

Investigators say they were able to sort through the evidence and charged Yeargin with murder, kidnapping and obstructing justice.

Yeargin is in the Greenville County Detention Center. A judge denied him bond on Monday.
