The identity of a woman shot to death found by Kershaw County Sheriff’s deputies Saturday afternoon has been released. A suspect has also been charged in her killing.
The body of 59-year-old Debra Tyler was discovered after deputies responded to a domestic dispute call at a home on Highway 601 south of Lugoff. They found 49-year-old Greg Smith trying to leave the scene and took him into custody for the fatal shooting. Investigators also questioned the victim’s husband, 56 year-old David Tyler, who investigators described as uncooperative. Debra Tyler’s body was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
David Tyler later died at the jail when he apparently went into cardiac arrest.
During the search of the home, officers found a functioning meth lab and a marijuana growing lab. Six deputies had to be taken to the hospital because they were exposed to chemicals from the lab.
