ANDERSON, S.C. — Authorities in South Carolina are looking for a man they say killed two people whose bodies were found in separate barrels in a lake.

Anderson County deputies said Friday that 35-year-old John Young is charged with two counts of murder.

Authorities say 37-year-old Andrea Mitchell and 52-year-old Tony McGinnis died from head injuries suffered in a beating a month ago.

Mitchell's body was found Wednesday in a plastic barrel that was partially submerged in Lake Hartwell. Deputies returned to the lake Thursday and found McGinnis' dismembered body in a metal barrel about 10 feet under water.

Deputies say they found a chain saw and machetes at Young's home, near where the bodies were found.

Investigators say a man already in custody is charged as an accessory for allegedly helping Young get rid of the bodies.
