CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say they are examining bones found by a search group through information given by an inmate on death row for killing a South Carolina woman six years ago.

Horry County police Sgt. Robert Kegler says members of Community United Effort found what appear to be parts of a human skull Sunday in woods near Longs.

Kegler says the group searched the area based on information from Chadrick Fulks. Fulks and co-defendant Brandon Basham were sentenced to death for killing Alice Donovan, who hasn't been seen since she was kidnapped from a Conway parking lot in 2002.

The bones have been sent for DNA testing.

Fulks and Basham also pleaded guilty to kidnapping and killing Marshall University student Samantha Burns, whose body has not been found.
