WILLIAMSTON, S.C. (WSPA) – Two people have been arrested after a woman was shot and killed early Friday morning in Williamston.

According to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded at about 12:20 a.m. to an address on Joe Black Road for a reported shooting.

The Anderson County Coroner’s Office said Amanda Marie Stovall, 36, of Williamston, was found in a vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday morning.

Detectives have arrested and charged Autumn Faith Hicks with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime for her involvement in the death of Stovall.

Ronald James Baker has also been charged with accessory after the fact of a felony for his involvement in the incident.

According to an arrest warrant, Baker observed Hicks shoot and kill the victim in his Dodge Ram truck in the parking lot of a Waffle House on Assembly Drive in Piedmont.

He drove the truck to their residence on Joe Black Rd. and told a neighbor about the incident, leaving Hicks alone in the home with an opportunity to escape.

He called authorities after the neighbor urged him to do so, the warrant said.

Both Hicks and Baker are at the Anderson County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
