MONTEZUMA, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia man has been charged in a monthlong violent rampage that included three deaths.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that 41-year-old Quentin James Sanders turned himself in to Montezuma police Sunday night after a woman found naked and covered in blood on a street said he’d stabbed her and slashed her throat that day.

GBI agents later linked Sanders to the Friday shooting deaths of 77-year-old Ruthe Bracknell and her son, 53-year-old Mark Abbott. He’s also accused in the Jan. 8 shooting of 49-year-old Ida Mae Ford, an armed robbery, shots fired at Mercer University students and an armed carjacking.

He is charged with murder and multiple other offenses in Bibb and Macon counties. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
