BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. – Raymond Hunter Nolan was arrested Thursday and charged with murder and destruction or desecration of human remains, Bennettsville police said Friday.

These charges are in connection with the missing person case of Shelby Head that was initiated Monday by her husband, Michael Head. Michael Head stated that Shelby went missing on Nov. 18.

An autopsy was conducted Friday at MUSC in Charleston. The remains have been positively identified as Shelby Head.

Nolan is incarcerated at the Marlboro County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing in the coming weeks.

The Bennettsville Police Department was assisted by the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division and the Marlboro County Sheriff Department.
