A 48-year-old homeless woman was indicted by an Horry County grand jury on murder and weapons charges in the stabbing death of a Myrtle Beach MAN, according to court records.
Sarah Wassillie, 48, who was staying in the Myrtle Beach area, was indicted on a charge of murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to indictments released Tuesday.
Wassillie’S arrest happened three days after 53-year-old William Allen Powell’s body was discovered Dec. 9 in the 2300 block of North Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach police said.
In an arrest warrant, authorities said that Powell had been dead for 48 to 72 hours before his body was found. He died from multiple stab wounds, the affidavit showed.
“Investigation of the crime scene yielded evidence that was linked to” Wassillie, according to the warrant.
Officers found Wassillie, and during an interview she revealed details of the crime that only someone involved would know about, police said in the warrant.
