TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - A California prison inmate is set to appear in a western Indiana courtroom Monday to face two counts of murder in connection with the shooting deaths of two Terre Haute women more than 34 years ago.

The Tribune-Star reports (https://bit.ly/1GzXind ) 61-year-old Harry Rowley was booked into the Vigo County Jail in Terre Haute late Friday almost 11 months after a warrant was issued for him in connection with the July 1980 slayings of 29-year-old Lucinda Farmer and 28-year-old Mary Quillen. The roommates were found dead in an alley behind their apartment building.

Court documents indicate Rowley has told investigators he shot the women after he saw them leaning on his car parked behind his apartment in the same complex.

Rowley is serving a California life sentence for a separate slaying.
