ATLANTA, Ga (AP) — A man accused of killing two teenagers near Atlanta is set to appear in court for a preliminary hearing.
Jeffrey Hazelwood is scheduled to appear Friday morning in Fulton County Magistrate Court.
The 20-year-old is charged with murder and theft in the killings of Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson in Roswell. Both 17-year-olds were found shot in the head. An autopsy report says their bodies were in distinct poses when they were found behind a Publix grocery store on August 1.
Police say they will not release a possible motive for the slayings, or whether Hazelwood knew the teens.
Hazelwood’s attorney, Lawrence Zimmerman, has said he’ll provide a vigorous defense.
Henderson and Davis, who used to live in Rapid City, South Dakota, would have been seniors this year at their Georgia high schools.
