Investigators say the Jefferson City man accused in two Thanksgiving day killings admits to shooting the victims.

Torry Upchurch, 27, faces murder charges in the deaths of 17-year-old Earle Key Jr. of Jefferson City and 33-year-old Shantae Hill-Cook of Columbia.

Police say Upchurch shot and killed Key at a home on West McCarty, then killed Hill-Cook on Southridge Drive.

Upchurch was apparently wearing bloody clothes when he later surrendered at the JCPD station.
