HALLSBORO — Authorities say they are investigating the death of a woman found in her Columbus County home.

Deputies say they found the body of 31-year-old Keisha Ward inside her home at around 1:20 p.m. Wednesday. Investigators also found Ward's boyfriend, Johnny Lee Tyler, who had suffered serious injuries after being "attacked and beaten by multiple assailants."

Tyler was taken to a hospital. Authorities have not said how Ward died, and an autopsy was scheduled for Thursday.

Authorities say several children were in the house, and one of them discovered the couple on New Year's Day.
