A suspect was arrested over the killing of two nuns whose bodies were found in their Mississippi home, authorities said late Friday.

Rodney Earl Sanders, 46, was charged with two counts of capital murder "after an exhaustive interview," the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

Sanders, of Kosciusko, is charged in connection with the killings of Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, both 68, who were found dead in their home in the rural town of Durant Thursday morning, the bureau said.

  1. Pure evil. Self gratification is all that matters.
    Really shocking. Born with no empathy or a conscience.
    A dangerous combination. The Sisters will be missed.

  2. I'm wondering if Sanders is one of the black inmates which were granted early release from prison some months back. If that were the case, that would be a new low.
