COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - Investigators say they have charged a man with killing his wife and his colleague in a gambling business in his upscale suburban Columbia home.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said 42-year-old Brett Parker turned himself in Friday after two murder charges were filed more than three months after the killings.

Lott says Parker shot his 44-year-old wife, Tammy, then picked up another gun and shot 46-year-old Brian Capnerhurst on April 13. Arrest warrants say Parker then tried to make it look like he was being robbed.

Lott says the Secret Service is investigating the gambling ring.
