Irmo, SC: Irmo man charged with murder in wife's death

The Associated Press
IRMO, S.C. — Police in Irmo have charged a 38-year-old man with murder in the death of his estranged wife.

Police Chief Brian Buck said 37-year-old Stacy Edward Wade was charged Saturday after officers found the body of 25-year-old Charnel Redden at a construction site.
Redden had been last seen Jan. 24 at Wade's house in Irmo. Buck says police think Wade killed her that night during a fight and took her body to the construction site.

Redden's family reported her missing when she didn't return their phone calls.

Wade was listed Saturday afternoon as an inmate in the Lexington County jail. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

My child just served on the jury for this guy. He said had the judge given them any option besides murder, maybe manslaughter, he would have been convicted and served time for this BUT the prosecution couldn't prove malice and premeditation. The idiot even defended himself, lets see, he KILLED his girlfriend, took her body to another site to hide, concealed what he had done and eluded the police before arrest and because of some loopholes in the wording of his charges, he walked out of the courtroom a free man, did not even need a lawyer, what has become of our justice system that a self proclaimed murderer, walks free???? my faith is truly shaken!!
