COLUMBIA (WACH) - Sheriff Jim Matthews tells WACH Fox that Kershaw County Sheriffâ??s Office investigators arrested 21 year old Stephen Ross Kelly of Lugoff Friday evening for the murder of Briana Nicole Rabon.

While friend aren't quite clear what the relationship was between Briana and Stephen, they say they wouldn't have been surprised if Briana got in the car with Stephen.

"If she knew him like I thought she might have maybe knew him, because I've seen Stephen before myself and I don't speak to him like that, there's a pretty good chance she probably knew him. Like I'm pretty sure 99% chance sure she knew him." says Ryan Getz, a friend of Briana's.

Briana Rabonâ??s body was found in a wooded area behind Haigâ??s Creek Subdivision in Elgin on Wednesday. Kelly is being detained at the Kershaw County Detention Center.

A bond hearing will be held during the next term of general session court in Kershaw County.

Sheriff Jim Matthews will hold a press conference at 10 am on Saturday morning at the Kershaw County Sheriffâ??s Office in Lugoff.
