Kershaw, SC: Kershaw man facing murder charge in wife's death

KERSHAW, S.C. — Authorities say a Lancaster County man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his wife.

Deputies say 62-year-old Joseph Daniel Hilton called authorities just before midnight Monday and admitted he had killed his wife.

Authorities found 59-year-old Deborah Faile Hilton inside the couple's Kershaw home. She had been shot once, and no one else was inside.

Hilton surrendered to authorities and told investigators he shot his wife during an argument. He was being held at the Lancaster County jail, and it wasn't known if he had an attorney.
