The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office has charged a man for a stabbing that occurred at Walmart on White Horse Road Saturday.

Thirty-eight-year-old Lilia Blandin from Simpsonville was stabbed by a man the Greenville County Coroner said she knew.

The Greenville County Sheriff’ Office has arrested and charged Avery L. Blandin of Simpsonville in connection with the incident that occurred at the Walmart on Saturday.

Mr. Blandin is charged with murder and currently is being held in the Greenville County Detention Center.

Sheriff’s Deputies said they got a call around 1:30 that there was a fight at the Walmart on White Horse Road.

When they arrived on scene, they determined from witnesses that a man and a woman were yelling at each other and then the man attacked the woman.

Witnesses said the Mr. Blandin ran away but Deputies but a couple of miles down the road he wrecked and was taken into custody.

Lilia Blandin was transported to Greenville Memorial where she died from her injuries around 2pm.

She was working as a teller at the Woodforest Bank inside the Walmart.

The store remained open for business, with only a part of the grocery check-out area closed so the investigators could look for evidence.

We asked Walmart if they had any comment and why the store wasn't closed and they had this to say.

A Spokeswoman said:

"This was a senseless act of violence, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s family during this difficult time.

"We are working closely with law enforcement to provide them with any information we have such as surveillance video to assist them in their investigation."

"In situations like this, we cooperate with the requests of law enforcement. In this case, we did, as requested, close our grocery checkout area to allow the detectives to do their work and provide some level of privacy, given the circumstances."

Bond for Avery Blandin has not been set. The autopsy will be held on Monday.
