Suspect in triple killing indicted on theft charge

HAYNEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A man charged with murder in a triple killing has been indicted by a Lowndes County grand jury in an unrelated theft case.

Lowndes County District Attorney Charlotte Tesmer said Monday the new charge against Deandra Marquis Lee involves a vehicle that was taken from a man in 2011. It has no connection to the murder charges.

Lee is charged with killing three people in Lowndes County - 9-year-old twins Jordan and Taylor Dejerinett and 73-year-old Jack Mac Girdner, who was babysitting the children. Their bodies were found on a dirt road near Hayneville on June 5.

A judge ruled last month there was enough evidence for a grand jury to hear the three murder charges against Lee, but cases have yet to be presented.
