ROSWELL, Ga (AP) — Police say a man accused of killing two teenagers whose bodies were found behind a grocery store in Atlanta’s suburbs is still being held in a city jail, but will be transferred to a larger jail at some point.

Roswell police say Thursday morning 20-year-old Jeffrey A. Hazelwood would be moved from their lockup to the Fulton County jail in Atlanta, but they won’t say when due to “safety reasons.”

Hazelwood was arrested Wednesday on two counts of murder in the Monday slayings of Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson. The teens, both 17, were shot once in the head.

Roswell police Det. Zachary Frommer says Thursday police won’t discuss any motive, nor will they comment on the relationship, if any, between Hazelwood and the teens.
