Mississippi authorities say a fugitive accused of a double-slaying and kidnapping has been killed but the two girls he fled with are safe.

Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall says 35-year-old Adam Mayes
was killed Thursday evening. He says 12-year-old Alexandria Bain
and 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain are safe.

Hall says Mayes died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The
chief says a SWAT team located Mayes and when they moved in to
apprehend him, he shot himself.

He says the girls are being taken to a hospital for observation.
It was not immediately clear if the girls were with Mayes.

Mayes' wife told investigators her husband killed Jo Ann and
Adrienne Bain on April 27 at their home in Whiteville, Tenn., so he
could abduct the two young sisters.
