An investigator has testified that a Mississippi man confessed to stabbing two nuns to death in their home.
LeCarus Oliver, a Mississippi Bureau of Investigation officer, testified Friday during a preliminary hearing for 46-year-old Rodney Earl Sanders of Kosciusko. Sanders is charged with capital murder in the slayings of Sisters Margaret Held and Paula Merrill.
Their bodies were found Aug. 25 and Sanders was arrested the next day. He remains jailed without bond, and a municipal judge ruled Friday that there's enough evidence against Sanders to send the case to a grand jury.
Oliver testified that Sanders' confession to law enforcement officers was recorded on audio the day Sanders was arrested.
