Local woman murdered in South Carolina

Authorities in Columbia, South Carolina are reporting that a former Buffalo resident was recently killed in that city.

The boyfriend of 44-year-old Johnette Pratt has been charged with murder in connection with her death. Pratt's body was found in a burning vehicle after 48-year-old Darrell Lyrell Griffin reported to authorities that the pair had been kidnapped. Sheriff's deputies investigated the claim, found it to be false, and arrested Griffin on the murder charge.

Pratt is a graduate of Kensington High School and left the area six years ago.
