WOODRUFF, S.C. (AP) – Investigators are continuing to comb for human remains and other clues on the South Carolina property of a man accused of a grisly crime spree stretching more than a decade.

Todd Kohlhepp became a suspect in at least seven deaths after a woman was found Thursday chained in a metal storage container on his 95-acre property near Woodruff.

Authorities say his arrest led to a confession in a notorious quadruple slaying at a motorcycle shop from 2003. He was denied bond Sunday on four murder charges for those deaths.

He’s also charged with kidnapping the woman. More charges are expected. A body found Friday has been identified as the woman’s boyfriend.

Kohlhepp showed officers Saturday what he says are two more gravesites. Human remains were found Sunday in one of them.
