MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A husband accused of killing two sisters faced a judge on Monday morning.

Donning a navy blue jumpsuit and sunglasses, Muhammad made his first court appearance and was emotionless as he told the judge he doesn't have a lawyer or a handgun permit.

Kendall Brown, 26, and Kayla Brown, 19, were found in the area of Shallow Woof Drive and Pathways Circle near Hickory Ridge Mall around 2 a.m. Thursday.

Investigators said one victim was found lying in the street. The other was found lying on the front steps of a home.

According to police, Muhammad came home to find his wife with another man. There were also five children inside the home at the time.  After taking a gun from his wife, Muhammad claims he blacked out.

"Right now it's hard to explain how I feel losing two daughters at one time," victim's father Jasper Moten said.

Muhammad later turned himself in to police. He is facing two counts of first-degree murder.

Officers said this isn't the first time Muhammad has been in trouble. In 2012, he hit his wife several times and threatened to kill her.

He is due back in court April 27 on his first-degree murder charges.
