"When deputies and first responders with Colleton County Fire Rescue arrived on scene, they say they discovered a child left in a vehicle.
Investigators say they determined the child was deceased when they arrived.
Deputies say SLED's Child Fatality Division and SLED's Crime Scene Division responded and assisted in the investigation.
As a result of the investigation, the sheriff's office says they have arrested two people. Rita Pangalangan and Larry King have both been charged in the minor child's death.
At this time, both Pangalangan and King are being held at the Colleton County Detention Center awaiting bond.
We reached out to the sheriff's office in Colleton County for more information and to see if they believe this case is tied in any way to 5-year-old Nevaha Adams' disappearance in Sumter.
The sheriff's office said at this time there is not a lot of information they can release on their investigation, but at this time, deputies say the child found in the vehicle is not Nevaha Adams."
