GREENWOOD, SC – Charges on a man accused of beating his long-time friend to death just before Christmas has had his charges upgraded after autopsy results determined that the victim died as a result of the attack.

According to officials with the Greenwood Police Department, the charge against Russell Aiken in connection with the attack has been upgraded from assault and battery of high aggravated nature to murder. Officials say that the victim, Jason Bush, died as a result of blunt force head trauma and strangulation in connection with the December 21 attack.

Aiken is currently being held at the Greenwood County Detention Center. His bond will have to be set by a Circuit Court judge, as do all bonds on charges that carry a life sentence or greater.
