GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — A woman has been charged with murder and other crimes after a man was found shot to death in an Upstate motel room. 

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said in a release that deputies responded to a burglary call Tuesday night at the Motel 6 located at 2015 Wade Hampton Blvd.

Responding officers found a man dead inside one of the rooms. 

The victim is identified as 22-year-old David M. Edens Jr. 

Emergency responders found Edens with a wound, according to the Greenville County Coroner’s Office.

The sheriff’s office arrested Kodesha Iyuna Bryson, 25, of Greenville in Edens’ killing.
