Deandra Lee Arrested On Charges Of Killing Dejerinett Twins & Babysitter Jack Mac Girdner

Posted: Updated:

SELMA, Ala. -- A man charged with killing 9-year-old twins and their 73-year-old baby sitter has been arrested in Alabama.

Prosecutor Michael Jackson says 22-year-old Deandra (dee-AHN'-dray) Marquis Lee was arrested Saturday morning in Selma. Authorities found him at an apartment complex after someone called in a tip to a hotline set up by state officials.

Jackson says Lee didn't resist when authorities arrived to arrest him.

Lee is wanted in the slayings of Jordan Dejerinett and his sister Taylor, plus 73-year-old Jack Mac Girdner. Authorities say Girdner was a retired anesthesiologist who sometimes cared for the children. The bodies of all three were found Tuesday in rural Lowndes County. Police say they were shot.

The search for Lee was concentrated in Dallas County, where he was acquitted in a double murder last year.
