Details are emerging about a man accused of chaining a woman in a storage container for weeks.

Teams digging on the property found one body Friday and feared there could be more.

Todd Christopher Kohlhepp, a 45-year-old registered sex offender with a previous kidnapping conviction in Arizona, appeared Friday at a bond hearing in Spartanburg on a kidnapping charge. More charges are expected.

The woman was rescued Thursday after weeks in captivity.

Prosecutor Barry Barnette says the Arizona case occurred when Kohlhepp kidnapped a 14-year-old girl, bound her and raped her in 1986.

Records from the Arizona case obtained by WHNS-TV in South Carolina show that a judge decided in 1987 to transfer the case to adult court partly because of Kohlhepp's aggressive nature.
