PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) — Investigators didn't suspect foul play when a Michigan mother went missing this week, even though friends insisted that Amy Henslee would never willingly leave behind her husband and sons.
After her family brought in tracking dogs to help in the search, authorities made a grim announcement: Two women, shot multiple times, had been found buried near a blood-splattered trailer in southern Michigan, and the man suspected in their deaths was a family relative.
Junior Lee Beebe, 34, was arraigned on two counts of murder and possession of a firearm during a felony in the slayings of Henslee, his cousin's wife, and Tonya Howarth. He didn't enter a plea, but when asked whether he understood the charges in Henslee's death, he responded: "Did or didn't? No I didn't."
