Fulton authorities continue couple's double homicide investigation

Posted: Updated:

Police continue to investigate a double homicide, where a couple was found murdered in their Fulton home late last night.

Seventy-seven year-old Fred House and his wife, 79-year-old Mildred House, were discovered by their son.

The Itawamba County Sheriff's Department has arrested 29-year-old Jake H. Carpenter of Fulton.

Carpenter was taken into custody early Saturday morning in Russellville after he was found driving the couple's car. Authorities say Carpenter has spent time in prison in connection to the case where jail officer Casey Harmon was killed in the Lee County Juvenile Detention Center.

Authorities say robbery was a motive and will charge Carpenter with two counts of murder and grand larceny.
