A Kershaw man is in jail after investigators say he shot and killed his wife during a domestic argument late Monday night.

Joseph Daniel Hilton, 62, called 911 to report that he had shot his wife just before midnight, according to Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile.

When deputies arrived to the couple's home at 8992 Old Jefferson Hwy., Hilton surrendered himself in the front yard, Faile said. 

Deputies then located Deborah Faile Hilton, 59, deceased inside the home. Hilton appeared to have a single gunshot wound, Faile said. 

According to the sheriff, the investigation thus far has shown that Hilton shot his wife one time following an argument. No one else was present at the time of incident, Faile said.

Joseph Hilton has been charged with murder and was incarcerated at the Lancaster County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
