LANCASTER, S.C. (WFMY) -- A South Carolina man is facing a murder charge after kids found a body last week while playing in the woods.

Lancaster County deputies tell WBTV 24-year-old David Adam Pate killed Rickey James and buried his body under a pile of brush.

Deputies said the body was "badly decomposed."

Pate is currently in jail. WBTV says officers arrested him about two weeks ago for disorderly conduct.
