Man charged in killings

MASON, Mich. (AP) — A man has been charged in the killings of two women who were found fatally beaten after he showed cellphone photos of their bodies to sheriff’s deputies during a traffic stop in central Michigan.
Kiernan Brown, of Delta Township, was arraigned Tuesday on two counts each of open murder and armed robbery. He entered not guilty pleas and was ordered held without bond.
The 27-year-old is accused in the deaths of 26-year-old Kaylee Ann Brock, of Holt, and 32-year-old Julie Ann Mooney, of Williamston. Police found their bodies Friday in Lansing-area communities.
Authorities say Brown was arrested early Friday on Interstate 69, after an ex-girlfriend reported that he had been violating a personal protection order by banging on her door and sending disturbing texts.
She is not among the victims.
