    MARLBORO COUNTY, S.C. - Authorities said a man from Rock Hill appears to have been electrocuted while working at Marlboro County High School.

       Investigators said the body of 44-year-old Jeffrey Cheek was found around 8 a.m. Wednesday. He was working on a generator in the school's electrical room.

       Authorities say students were kept in their classrooms for about two hours while the death was investigated.

       Marlboro County Coroner Tim Brown says all signs point to Cheek being electrocuted, but he has scheduled an autopsy Thursday to verify the cause of death.
