COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Authorities have released the identity of a woman found dead inside a Rubbermaid container in a McDonald's parking lot early Wednesday morning. 

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said Temukisa Enele, 25, of Pago Pago, American Samoa, died from multiple stab wounds and lacerations. Watts said Enele was living and working in Columbia at the time of her death.

Deputies say 26-year-old Faasiu Toese is charged with Enele's murder.

Enele's body was found in a large Rubbermaid container in the back seat of Toese's car, investigators said.

Investigators say Toese called 911 just before 3 a.m. to report a woman had been stabbed.  When deputies arrived at the restaurant at 7041 Parklane Rd., Toese pointed them to the Enele's body in his back seat.

Deputies say the incident began as a domestic argument at an apartment where the couple lived together on Ferrell Drive. After the stabbing, investigators say Toese drove Enele to the restaurant on Parklane Road. 

James Bass lives across the street from where the victim's body was found.

"I looked outside this morning and saw the sheriff's office out here," said Bass. "I didn't hear any sirens or anything. Didn't realize that was going on."
