A major manhunt in Alabama is over.  The Alabama Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Marshals captured triple murder suspect Deandre Lee.

Lee was caught at an apartment complex Saturday in Selma for the murders of 9-year-old twins and their 73-year-old babysitter.

He appeared before a judge in Lowndes County on Monday, and his bond was set at $3 million.  Lee also got a court-appointed attorney.

Lee was on the run from police for four days after the bodies of 9-year-old Montgomery twins Jordan and Taylor Dejerinett, and their babysitter, 73-year-old Jack Mac Girdner were found.

Girdner's Mercedes was found stripped in Dallas County with all four doors gone.

Selma Police Chief William Riley said a concerned citizen called in with Lee's location, and half an hour later, authorities broke down the apartment door and made their move.

According to Chief Riley, Lee was not alone.  A woman he was staying with was also taken into custody.  The ABI has not said who she is and whether or not she will face charges.
