Arrest made in Missouri double killing

SALEM, Mo. | A southern Missouri sheriff says charges are pending against a suspect in the deaths of a husband and wife earlier this week.

Dent County sheriff Rick Stallings says the man was arrested Friday in the town of Holts Summit, just north of Jefferson City. The suspect's name has not been released, and KOLR-TV reports that charges are expected Saturday.

Deputies found the bodies of 57-year-old Dennis Lewis and his wife, 50-year-old Mary Lewis, on Tuesday afternoon at their home in rural Dent County near Salem.

Autopsies showed that Dennis Lewis was shot three times in the head and his wife once in the head.

There's been no word on a possible motive for the killings.
