CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Charlottesville police have charged a 30-year-old man with the slayings of a preschool teacher and her teenage daughter.

Police tell media outlets that Gene Everett Washington is charged with two counts of first-degree. Washington is being held without bond at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.

Police found the bodies of 58-year-old Robin Aldridge and 17-year-old Mani Aldridge inside their burned home Saturday morning. Police say the mother’s car was found at an apartment complex where Washington lives.

Police Chief Tim Longo says both victims appeared to have been beaten.

Longo said Tuesday at a news conference that Washington knew Mani Aldridge. He did not provide any details.

Robin Aldridge was a teacher at Hollymead Elementary School.
