Over the course of two weeks at one house near Spartanburg, South Carolina, there was a stabbing and a killing, and then a suspicious fire gutted the home, according to WSPA.
Spartanburg sheriff’s deputies arrested William Tommie Smith, 63, after he called 911 Sunday morning and told a dispatcher he had killed his girlfriend, Brenda Kay Tanner, 55, at the house in Inman, South Carolina, the station reports.
“Right around 8 o’clock, we got a call from a guy that just said he’d killed his girlfriend. He called our dispatch (and said) that he would turn himself in at 9:30. He said he was going to go smoke crack first, so he pretty much did just that,” Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright told WYFF.
