HARDEMAN COUNTY, TN (WMC-TV) - A man and a woman were murdered Wednesday inside a mobile home off of Hwy 125 North in Silerton, Tennessee.

Authorities say a suspect, Alfred Stack, was taken into custody after he entered a Jackson mental health facility and told employees he had shot and killed two people.

He's now in the Hardeman County jail, but no charges have been filed.

Investigators waited outside the home Wednesday night for a search warrant to remove the bodies.

Neighbors say Stack shot his sister and her husband, who recently moved into the home with him.
