HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. (AP) -- An 83-year-old man has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder after two women were found shot to death at a home in Harpers Ferry.

Media report the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that Charles Clark, who lived at the residence, was being held without bond in the Eastern West Virginia Regional Jail after the shootings Friday.

The women killed were identified as 79-year-old Shirley Clark and her daughter, 60-year-old Elizabeth Ann Mansfield.
