Investigators said it appeared both victims were put in the lake to try and hide or dispose of their bodies.

On Aug. 12, deputies arrested Joshua Nutt, 39, in connection to the deaths.

Last week, Abbrianna Marie Williams was charged with two counts of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, two counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of making a false statement.
