The Mississippi police arrested James Willi, a 28-year-old man, who is believed to be responsible for two highway killings this month, said the department of public safety today.
Willie was arrested Tuesday morning in Tunica. He is charged with assault, kidnap, and rape. The statement declared that he will be charged with two counts of capital murder.
His 9mm handgun matched the weapon used in two shootings in northern Mississippi.
A 74-year-old man was found dead in his pickup truck on May 8, and three days later, the body of a 48-year-old woman was found by her car by a state highway.
The investigation of these killings will carry on.
