1 charged in shooting death of Spartanburg Co. woman

Deputies arrested a 68-year-old woman in the shooting death of another woman in Una.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said Linda Huntley, 68, has been charged with murder, four counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Alexandra Renea Toney, 24, was shot Friday evening along Edgewood Avenue and taken to the hospital, where she later died.

Huntley called 911 around 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Deputies found Huntley on the front porch of her home with a rifle at her feet.

Deputies said Huntley fired a rifle into a vehicle that Toney and her two small children were in.

Huntley reportedly confessed to the shooting. 

Deputies said two other people fled the shooting scene, but deputies tracked them down by Saturday evening to determine their involvement in the incident.

Deputies believe a dispute over a drug transaction was the motive behind the shooting.

A judge denied bond for Huntley on Sunday morning.
