BISHOPVILLE, SC (WIS) - A Cassatt man has been charged in connection with the death of a woman he was with at a private hunting club Saturday night.

Lee County Sheriff Daniel Simon said 61-year-old Charles Glenn Tedder has been charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident involving great bodily harm after an acquaintance of his was found dead near the cabin they were sharing.

Authorities found Deborah Grainger-Brown, 59, of Camden dead around 2:00 a.m. Sunday near McGee Town Road on the grounds of a private hunting club in Lee County, according to Simon.

Simon said Tedder and Grainger-Brown were alone at a cabin at the hunting club Saturday night. Tedder told investigators that Grainger-Brown went outside to go to the bathroom and never returned.

Tedder said that he got into his truck and drove around looking for her, but couldn't find her, according to Simon. He went to Camden to his daughter that he couldn't find Grainger-Brown and when they returned to the hunting club, they found her body in the yard of the cabin, said Simon.

An autopsy indicated Brown died of severe body trauma caused by being struck by a vehicle.

Simon said authorities believe Tedder hit Grainger-Brown with his truck, but that the death was accidental. 

Investigators are not charging Tedder with murder because they cannot prove malice. 

Tedder is in custody at the Lee County Detention Center.
