HEPHZIBAH, GA (WFXG) -

A 21-year-old man is charged with murder after a man's body was found Wednesday in a field in Hephzibah. 

Altaye Levelle Knight of 1810 North Barton Drive is accused of killing 27-year-old Damon Terrell Prymus, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said Prymus also lived at 1810 North Barton Drive. 

Prymus' body was found off Williams Drive shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday, said Sgt. Glen Rahn with the sheriff's office.

Employees at C & S Tires Transmissions up the road said they're shocked.

"It's kind of scary," Dan Burke said, "I feel bad for whoever it was."

A customer who didn't want to go in front of our cameras said it's just sad.

"I just think it's horrible that someone would discard a human body that like that like it's trash," one anonymous man said.

Cause of death will be determined once an autopsy is completed at the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta.
