3 women arrested in fire chief’s murder

BRANCHVILLE (AP) — Three women have been arrested in the stabbing death of the Branchville fire chief.

The State Law Enforcement Division says 40-year-old Melody Oakley was arrested Tuesday and charged with murder and conspiracy in the death of her husband, Branchville Fire Chief Alan Oakley.

Two Orangeburg women, 47-year-old Ann M. Anderson and 25-year-old Carrie Ashley Brown, were also arrested on the same charges.

Police say the 48-year-old chief was stabbed to death on Saturday. Warrants say the women are accused of planning and carrying out the killing.

State police did not immediately respond to a question on if the women had attorneys, and warrants did not list that information. On Tuesday, a judge denied bond for all three of them.
