• SC man charged with killing wife


    COLUMBIA, S.C. - A Richland County man has been charged with shooting and killing his estranged wife.

       Deputies have charged Dexter Lee Boulware with murder and burglary.

       Officers said Tacora Thomas was shot and killed at her mother's home late Monday morning.

       Investigators said Thomas and her mother arrived at the home and were assaulted by a suspect in the home. Investigators think the suspect shot Thomas several times and left.

       Deputies said the victim's mother was not hurt.

       An autopsy is planned Tuesday.

       Officers found Boulware at a relative's home shortly after the shooting and arrested him.

       Sheriff's spokesman Curtis Wilson said Thomas had taken out a court order of protection against Boulware.
