ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man accused of killing two people and stuffing their bodies in barrels has appeared before a judge.

A magistrate on Sunday formally charged John Michael Young with two counts of murder and unauthorized removal of a dead body.

Young was captured at an Anderson home Saturday. Deputies found a chain saw and machetes in his home near Lake Hartwell.

Authorities say Young killed 52-year-old Tony McGinnis in September and 37-year-old Andrea Mitchell in October by beating them in the head.

Mitchell's body was found Wednesday in a plastic barrel partially submerged in the lake. Deputies found McGinnis' dismembered body in a metal barrel Thursday.

Shaine David Fischer is charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of murder. It wasn't known if the men had attorneys.
