ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) -

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office has charged a man with murder in connection with the disappearance of 40-year-old Kimberly Parrish.

Deputies have arrested Kenneth Franklin Cutter of North around noon on Friday and charged him with Parrish's death despite not having found her body.

Officials say Cutter has been Parrish's friend for at least four months. Investigators recovered DNA and clothing evidence that belonged to Parrish from an abandoned house near the suspect's residence in North.

Parrish has been missing since Dec. 21, and was last seen between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. when she went to the Helping Hands Care Giver facility to pick up her paycheck.

Deputies say Parrish was last seen driving an olive green 1999 Chevy Malibu with South Carolina tag HVT-700.

The Malibu was later discovered in the town of North with no evidence of Parrish. 

Cutter will be arraigned on Monday at 2:30 p.m.
