ANDREWS, SC (WBTW) - An Andrews mother was found dead in a pool of blood inside her home Tuesday night.

According to our news partners at the Georgetown Times, a 31-year-old female was found before midnight in an apartment on Claire Street in Andrews.

Georgetown County Coroner Kenny Johnson identified the woman as Yvonne Holmes.

Carnell Kennedy, 32, was booked into the Georgetown County Detention Center at just past 2 a.m., according to jail records. He is accused by deputies of shooting  Holmes several times just before midnight Tuesday.

Johnson told the newspaper an autopsy will be done Wednesday, but it appears Holmes was shot in the head.

Holmes was a mother of a young boy, Braquiza Myzick, and things seemed to be OK between the victim and boyfriend just a day before the shooting, the newspaper reported.

Vanessa Holmes, said her daughter had been dating Kennedy and they were all together Tuesday afternoon.

"Everyone was laughing and talking," she told the newspaper.
