The body of 37-year-old Jamie Miller of Chesnee was found in the trunk of the stolen car Saturday. It was one of two cars reported stolen a day earlier.
Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Bobo says a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper spotted the second stolen vehicle Sunday on state Highway 11 and chased it until it crashed. Bobo says the driver, 31-year-old Steven Clayton Scruggs of Gaffney, was charged with murder. Thirty-one-year-old Tabitha Lianna Cook of Chesnee faces an accessory charge.
There’s no word yet whether they have attorneys. Bobo said investigators are trying to determine a motive in Miller’s death.
