Mom, Son Both Charged in Death of South Carolina Man

Mom, Son Both Charged in Death of South Carolina Man”

Two arrests have been made after a SC man's body was found dismembered under his home Thursday afternoon.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said in a news release that the body of 51-year-old Gary James Stone was found in several containers under a home Thursday.

Dawn Michelle Wilkins, 40, and her son Charles Jacob Bridges, 20, are charged with the murder of Gary James Stone, 51, of Gaffney.

Wilkins, 40, is the victim's common-law wife, Mueller said.

Deputies visited the home after getting a request for a welfare check last Friday, Sheriff Mueller said. When they arrived on scene, they spoke to Stone who indicated he and Bridges had been involved in an argument. Bridges was not on scene when deputies got there and they were told he walked away to cool off. During their search, deputies found containers with the victim's body inside.

"It's not normal to see this type of evil on a daily basis, even in law enforcement", Mueller said.

A family member said she became alarmed when a neighbor contacted her to say they noticed blood on the door of the house. No activity had occurred on his cell phone.

Deputies received a phone tip that made them return to the property nearly a week later with search warrants.

Deputies returned Wednesday and then got a tip Thursday that someone had been killed at the property. Investigators reached out to a magistrate's office to obtain a search warrant, which was executed around 3 p.m.

When authorities first attended the property, Wilkin's told them that Stone had left after the couple had argued and she had not heard from him since, the sheriff said.

AP reported that Sheriff Steve Mueller said Bridge had admitted his involvement but that Wilkins' had not.

Both suspects are being held at the Cherokee County Jail and the case remains under investigation.
