CLAIBORNE COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The victims of last week's double homicide in Claiborne County were laid to rest Saturday.

Family and friends said their final goodbyes to Kawanna Williams and Melvina Hedrick.  

The man authorities believe is responsible for killing them was captured Monday.

Tips from family members led police to Dennis McCay.

The following day, investigators recovered the murder weapon in the woods not too far away from where McCay was arrested off Tillman Chapel Road.

Lawmen said he shot and killed Hedrick and Williams, then threw their bodies off of bridges in rural parts of the county.

He was believed to be in a love triangle with the two women. 

Charges are pending against McCay in Claiborne County.
