AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WIS) - An Aiken woman died from asphyxiation after a fight with a male friend at her home early Saturday morning, according to the coroner's office.

The incident happened near Aiken Electrical Cooperative on Highway 302.

Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said Helen Magee, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene.

He said details surrounding the incident remain sketchy after Magee's friend, 35-year-old James Gray, invoked his 5th amendment right to remain silent.

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is also aiding in the investigation.
