A carnival worker is accused of killing two women in Tennessee whom he met through his job and the teenage daughter of a co-worker in Georgia, NBC News reported.
James Michael Wright faces three capital murder charges, according to a statement from the Washington County, Virginia, Sheriff's Office. The women were reported missing earlier this year and are said to have been killed between Feb. 28 and March 17.
Wright, a 23-year-old from Mendota, Virginia, allegedly told investigators that the killings were accidental, but Sheriff Fred Newman said he "found that hard to believe."
