South Carolina Man Arrested In The Murders of 2 Found Stuffed In Barrels

| November 18, 2012 | 0 Comments


South Carolina authorities arrested a man accused of killing two people more than a month ago and stuffing their bodies in barrels before dumping them into a lake.

Anderson County Sheriff’s spokesman Chad McBride says John Michael Young was arrested early Saturday. A jail spokesman says Young was likely to make a first appearance before a judge later Saturday. He did not know if Young had an attorney.

Deputies charged Young with two counts of murder after collecting a chainsaw and machetes from his home near Lake Hartwell.

Authorities say Young killed 52-year-old Tony McGinnis in September and 37-year-old Andrea Mitchell in October by beating them in the head in woods near his home. Investigators haven’t given a motive but say the slayings weren’t random.
