FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A suspect wanted in connection with a fatal February shooting in Florence County has been captured in the state of New York.

According to a press release from the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, Lawrence Sean Denuncio, 31, of Florence, was taken into custody Wednesday in Albany, N.Y. by agents with the U.S. Marshals Service and various New York law enforcement agencies.

Denuncio is accused of shooting and killing Marvin Chandler on Jeffords Street in Florence County on Feb. 27, the release stated.

Authorities also arrested Joyce Elizabeth Wilson, 38, of Florence, who is charged with obstruction of justice. Investigators allege she witnessed the altercation between the victim and Denuncio, which eventually led to the murder.
