CHARLESTON, S.C. (WJBF) – Authorities say a man has turned himself in to face charges for the murder of a transgender woman in the Charleston-area.

Dominick Archield, 34, of North Charleston, turned himself into North Charleston Police to face charges for the murder of Denali Berries Stuckey, according to WCBD-TV.

Stuckey was found dead on the side of Carner Avenue on July 20 just after 4 a.m. North Charleston police say Stuckey died as a result of gunshot wounds.

Archield is currently being held at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center. A bond hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Meanwhile, no arrests have been made in the death of another South Carolina transgender woman, 24-year-old Dime Doe. Much details surrounding Doe’s death is unknown. Family members tell NewsChannel 6’s Shawn Cabbagestalk that the 24-year-old’s body was found inside of a car in a driveway off of Concord Church Road in Allendale County. They received a devastating call – their loved one was killed.

“They have hurt us in the worst way, the very worst way,” Doe’s aunt Rhonda Doe told Shawn in response to Doe’s death.
