Authorities have arrested the estranged wife of a man found buried on a rural South Carolina property owned by a suspect in several homicides.

Anderson police told news media that 35-year-old Nichole Ellen Carver was arrested Tuesday.

Police say Nichole Carver posed as a detective when she called AT&T last month to track down the location of Charlie Carver's phone.

Charlie Carver was reported missing in August with his girlfriend, Kala Brown. Brown was rescued from a storage container on the Spartanburg County property last week and told sheriff's deputies her boyfriend had been shot and killed. Carver's body was found Friday.

The property owner, Todd Kohlhepp, has been arrested and deputies say he confessed to killing four other people in the county in 2003. He has not been charged in Carver's death.
