LAURINBURG, N.C. -

The Scotland County sheriff's office has charged a 25-year-old Laurinburg man with the beating death of his girlfriend.

The Laurinburg Exchange reported Brian Lynn Mishue has been charged with murder in the death of 25-year-old Geneva Smith of Laurinburg.

Deputies were called to the couple's home around 9:20 p.m. Sunday. Smith was taken to Scotland Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Capt. Jon Edwards says it appears Mishue did not use a weapon in beating the woman.

It was not clear if Mishue has an attorney.
