CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities are releasing more details on a double slaying in Camden.

Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo says surveillance cameras showed 32-year-old James Peterson with one of the victims in the hours before the killings, and later leaving the apartment where the bodies were found.

Peterson is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

Peterson is charged with shooting 50-year-old Richard Lincoln and 33-year-old Angel Martinez.

Peterson was in Camden County jail on $2 million bail and was to be arraigned Thursday afternoon. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

It was the second double killing this month in Camden.
