A man has been charged with murder after an altercation between neighbors.

Deputy Drew Pinciaro of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office stated that Andrew Stuart Hagler, 23, of Greenville, has been charged with murder after an altercation between he and a neighbor on Wilbanks Street.

Lieutenant Tim Ridgeway of the sheriff's office said that deputies responded to Wilbanks Street, just off of White Horse Road, around 7 p.m. after receiving reports of a dispute between neighbors. When deputies arrived, they found Roger Allen Hughes, 55, lying on the ground unconscious.

According to sheriff's office, deputies learned that Hagler and his neighbor had become involved in an altercation which escalated. Ridgeway said the two men began fighting and then wrestling and ultimately the victim became unresponsive.

Following the altercation, Hagler left the scene, but had returned to the scene when deputies arrived. Hughes was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital where he later died.

According to warrants obtained from the sheriff's office, deputies took Hagler into custody and he admitted to punching Hughes in the head three to four times. As a result of the findings, investigators charged Hagler with murder and he is currently being held at the Greenville County Detention Center where he is awaiting a bond hearing.

The Greenville County Coroner's Office says Hughes died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.
