LEXINGTON, Miss. (AP) -- A man suspected in the slayings of two Mississippi nuns who were found dead inside a residence within the community they served has been arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder, Mississippi authorities said.
Rodney Earl Sanders, 46, of Kosciusko, Mississippi, was charged in the deaths of Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, both 68, Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain said in a statement released late Friday night.
The bodies of both women were discovered Thursday after they failed to show up for work at a clinic in Lexington, Mississippi, about 10 miles from where they lived.

Killing someone with a knife is personal and vicious. Imagine the horror of the Nun who had to wait for her own death while watching the death of her friend.
This man should be put down with a knife but slowly as to replicate the agonizing death of those Sisters who did so much for a community in dire need of any help!
Our World is out of control because the individuals who commit crimes have more rights then the victims.
