Two Solway Murder Suspects in Court

Knoxville (WVLT) - Two of the three people charged in connection with the murders of a Solway couple appeared in court Friday morning.

Knox County Sheriff's Deputies say 21-year-old Andrew Mann is the trigger man.

According to the warrant, his 15-year-old girlfriend Amanda McGhee called him on June 29th and told him to come to her home.

When he arrived, he allegedly shot and killed her father, 60-year-old Terrance McGhee.

When Terrance McGhee’s wife, Alisa returned home from work later that day, deputies say Mann shot and killed her.

Mann and 23-year-old Christopher Kirkland also face two counts of first degree murder.

Deputies say Kirkland knew about the murders, but did nothing.

Amanda McGhee also faces two counts of first degree murder.

She's in juvenile custody now, but prosecutors say they plan to charge her as an adult.
