Andrews man charged with killing woman in Socastee

SOCASTEE, S.C. (AP) — An Andrews man has been charged in the death of a woman in Socastee last month.

Multiple media reported that 32-year-old Patrick Durell Hurell is charged with murder in the death of 31-year-old Denisha King.

Horry County police were called Dec. 1 by a man who said he found his female fiance unresponsive.

Tony Hendrick with the Horry County coroner’s office says King’s cause of death will be determined after autopsy results are complete.

An arrest warrant states that Hurell had King’s car when he was arrested in North Carolina.

Hurell is being held in the Horry County jail. It was not known if he has an attorney.
