Columbus, Ohio — Authorities say a murder suspect being questioned in West Virginia in the disappearance of an elderly Ohio couple has told police that their bodies are in Georgia.
Samuel K. Littleton II was arrested Wednesday in Princeton, W.Va., where the car belonging to Richard and Gladis Russell of Bellefontaine, Ohio, was found a day earlier. The couple has been missing for nine days.
A statement from the Lowndes County, Ga., sheriff's office posted on the website of WSYX-TV in Columbus, Ohio, says Littleton told West Virginia police that he discarded the bodies in the county while driving to Florida. Authorities are searching the area.
Littleton is charged in the stabbing death of his girlfriend's 26-year-old daughter, whose body was found in the basement of a home he bought from the Russells in 2009.
