CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Relatives say a Boone County man charged with slashing the throats of two women had argued with one of them earlier in the day.
Thirty-six-year-old Timothy Parsons was arraigned by video conference on murder charges Wednesday in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The bodies of Parsons' wife, Leigh Ann Kinder-Parsons, and her mother, Sue Kinder of Lexington, Ky., were found Tuesday at the couple's home in Bloomingrose.
Parsons also is charged with sexually assaulting Kinder-Parsons' teenage daughter, who later escaped. Relatives Kay and Rick Linville, who live next door, said Wednesday their niece told them Parsons and her mother had gotten into a spat earlier in the day. They say the couple had been married only a few years.
Parsons is being held without bond at the South Central Regional Jail.
