A Florida man has been charged with murder in the death of an Anderson County woman - one of two women killed in a similar fashion - police say.
Raymondeze Lamon Rivera, 28, of Tampa was charged Saturday with murder in connection with the death of 28-year-old mother of two, Kwana Burns.
Rivera was arrested in a traffic stop outside Atlanta late Friday, said Linda Dudley, spokeswoman for the Anderson police department.
Rivera was driving a vehicle matching the description given to police from witnesses who had seen Burns talking with a man at a South Carolina gas station the day before she was killed.
Burns was found bound and gagged on the floor of her new home by her 9-year-old son Thursday morning. She had been suffocated. Her death was linked to the suffocation of 27-year-old Asha Wiley on Dec. 11. Wiley also was found dead in her home.
Anderson investigators traveled to Douglas County, Ga., on Saturday to interview Rivera. He could be extradited to South Carolina as early as Monday.
"We are trying to find out what information he may or may not know about the deaths of Asha Wiley and Kwana Burns," Dudley said.
Dudley said Rivera was charged in Burns' death and had yet to be linked to any other killings.
"We have contacted other law enforcement agencies in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina for them to check their missing persons and unsolved murder cases," Dudley said. "Right now, we only have evidence to link him to the Kwana Burns case."
Dudley said investigators don't know why Rivera may have been in Anderson this month or how he may have met the two women.
Investigators say they were able to find a general location for Rivera based on information from Burns' cell phone.
