Relatives Prepare To Bury Victims Of Slayings

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Family members are preparing to bury the victims of a mass slaying in Georgia, a week after the bodies were found in a mobile home.

The service will take place with a suspect in custody: A relative of seven of the victims.

Police say Guy Heinze Jr. was responsible for the slayings he'd reported to 911.

They've charged him with eight counts of first-degree murder.

Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering says two new pieces of information led authorities to charge Heinze last night.

He would not say what that information was or how the victims died last weekend at a mobile home park a few miles north of Brunswick.

The chief also declined to say whether police believe Heinze acted alone.

Hours after the bodies were found, Heinze was charged with evidence tampering, lying to police and drug possession.

Heinze's attorney said earlier this week that his client denies any part in the slayings.
