LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A man is charged with two counts of capital murder in Lauderdale County.
Mark Edwin Montgomery is charged with the murder of Joanna Strickland Butler and Clo Ann Taylor Stoner, who were found dead inside a home on County Road 10 on Monday afternoon.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to the home early Monday afternoon.
Deputies say Montgomery led them on a car chase shortly after they went to the home. The chase lasted nearly 30 minutes, but ended when he returned to County Road 10, just about a hundred yards from the scene of the double murder.
Montgomery is being held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center.
