Jeffrey Hazelwood (CBS News)

ROSWELL, Ga — Police say a man accused of killing two teenagers whose bodies were found behind a grocery store in Atlanta’s suburbs faces more charges.

Roswell police Detective Zachary Frommer says in an email  sent Friday morning 20-year-old Jeffrey A. Hazelwood is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of theft by taking and financial transaction card fraud. Hazelwood was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of murder in the Monday slayings of Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson. The 17-year-olds were each shot once in the head.

Frommer says the card fraud charge stems from the use of Henderson’s credit-debit card at an area gas station after the killing.

Frommer says detectives have completed their questioning of Hazelwood and he will be transferred to the Fulton County Jail on Friday evening.
