Earlier this month, authorities responded to a domestic violence incident on Carolina Road in Conway.

Officers said Hilliard had already run away before they arrived at the scene.

The victim said she and Hilliard had a verbal disagreement, which turned into a physical altercation so she told him to leave. The victim said Hilliard put his hands around her neck and choked her causing her to lose consciousness while he pulled her from inside the house into the parking lot.

The victim said she felt her body go limp. When the victim regained consciousness, she said Hilliard still had her by the neck and she yelled for help. The victim said her father came to the door and called 911.

The victim said this isn’t the first incident between her and the suspect.

Hilliard is charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

He’s 25 years old with a last known address of Harvestere Circle in Myrtle Beach.

Horry County police are also searching for Marie Elizabeth Kennedy.
