SHOALS, Ind. (AP) - A southwestern Indiana man faces two murder counts among seven charges in connection with the shooting deaths of two men.

WTHI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1UsimDc ) the Martin County Prosecutor’s Office also filed two counts each of burglary and theft and one count of auto theft Tuesday against 33-year-old Nathan Baker.

Eighty-two-year-old Alan Sims and 52-year-old Tom Tharp of Shoals were found slain Aug. 26 outside Sims’ home near the community of Dover Hill, about 65 miles northeast of Evansville.

Baker was arrested after crashing a car in nearby Lawrence County while fleeing officers. Police have said Baker had lived on Sims’ property but was asked to leave.

Baker is being held in the Martin County Jail. It wasn’t clear whether he has an attorney who might comment on his case.
