The man charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old Richland County girl from her home one year ago now is also charged with her murder.
53-year-old Freddie Grant appeared before a judge on Friday morning and was formally charged in the death of Gabbiee Swainson.
Sheriff Leon Lott says Grant led investigators to Swainson's remains Thursday at a grave site in Kershaw County near Elgin.
Several searches and vigils were held during the past year in hopes that the teen might still be alive while Grant refused to cooperate with investigators trying to learn what happened after she was abducted.
The sheriff says Grant finally talked after his own daughter, 27-year-old Dominique Grant, was also charged in the case for allegedly trying to mislead investigators by placing Swainson's cell phone in Myrtle Beach.
On Friday morning, paperwork was filed to dismiss the charges against Grant's daughter and she was released from jail.
It's thought that was part of a deal made to get Grant to show where Swainson was buried.
Meanwhile, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts has confirmed the remains found near Elgin are those of Gabbiee Swainson.
Watts says he was able to verify that through the use of forensic science.
But he says continued testing will be needed to make a final determination on her cause of death.
