LITHONIA, Ga. –Police have charged a man in the murders of a mother and daughter at a Lithonia apartment.
Two women were discovered dead inside an apartment in the 2600 block of Parkway Trail. Both had been shot. An 8-month-old child was in the home, apparently unharmed.
DeKalb County Police spokesperson Shiera Campbell said Wednesday afternoon that 40-year-old Michael Thorton had been arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
“We know that they know each other; we don’t know exactly what the relationship is,” Sgt. Steven Dean said earlier Wednesday.
Neighbors were shocked to hear of the deaths.
