ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - A man has been charged with murder after police found the body of another man in a vacant building in South Carolina.

Anderson police say they arrested 46-year-old Andy Steve Roach not far from where the body was found Friday night.

Authorities say 50-year-old Steven Ross Hughes appeared to have been beaten in the head.

Police didn't give a motive for the killing. Roach is being held at the Anderson city jail. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
