LAURENS COUNTY, S.C. -

Six arrests have been made in connection with the death of a teenager in Clinton over the weekend.  One man is charged with murder.  Another is charged with accessory after the fact.

The Clinton Department of Public Safety says officers responded to Calvert Avenue around 11 p.m. Saturday where they found 19-year-old Emily Anna Asbill in cardiac arrest.

Director Robin Morse says Asbill was taken to the Laurens County Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The Laurens County Coroner's Office says Asbill died of asphyxiation due to strangulation.

Six suspects were later charged by the Laurens County Sheriff's Office with contributing the delinquency of a minor.  They include William Jarrell Alexander, 30; Michael Vernon Beaty, Jr., 29; Charity Nichole Chiapetta,, 27; Nicholas A. Chiapetta, 29; Kyle Bronson Stewart, 29; and Rose Marie Stewart, 28.

Investigators say all six supplied alcohol and drugs to Asbill the night she died.

Beaty, Jr., who was Asbill's boyfriend according to authorities, faces an additional charge of murder.  Beaty has a court hearing scheduled for 8:00 a.m. Tuesday.  Alexander also faces an accessory after the fact charge.

Charity and Nicholas Chiapetta and Kyle and Rose Stewart were all released on a $5,000 bond.

 

Bond was denied for Beaty Tuesday morning, because of the murder charge against him holds no bail statute, according to the judge.

 

"Any time you work a death investigation it's always tough," said Morse, "but when you have young people involved like this, where they had their whole life in front of them, it just makes it even sadder."
