RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A 41-year-old man who was recently free on bond awaiting a court appearance on a criminal domestic violence charge has been charged with the shooting death of his wife, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

According to Richland County Sheriff's Department spokesman Curtis Wilson, Dexter Lee Boulware has been charged murder and burglary in connection with the death of 27-year-old Tacora Thomas.

Officials say the incident happened around 10:00 a.m. at 200 Thornfield Road in the Winslow subdivision off Clemson Road.

Investigators said Thomas was shot multiple times in the upper body by Boulware. They say the two were in the process of separating and she had an order of protection against him.

Investigators said Thomas and her mother were inside the home at the time of the incident.

Thomas' mother was injured when she tripped and fell while trying to get out of the home and to her neighbor's house. That neighbor managed to call 911.

Deputies said Boulware ran from the home, but was arrested on Durham Creek Road without incident.

Investigators said they were able to recover the gun they believe was used in the crime.

Deputies responded to the same home Sunday to investigate possible threatening text messages from Boulware.

Boulware was out of jail on bond for a previous domestic violence incident, just three weeks ago. He paid just over $5,000 dollars to get out of jail.

Deputies say Thomas had a restraining order against her husband from that previous domestic violence arrest.
