HAYNEVILLE, Ala. (AP) _ An Alabama judge has ordered the suspect in the shooting deaths of 9-year-old twins and their 73-year-old baby sitter to be held on $3 million bond.

Deandra (dee-AHN’-dray) Marquis Lee was in a black-and-white jail uniform with his hands and ankles shackled when he appeared Monday before Lowndes County District Judge Adrian Johnson. Johnson set the 22-year-old’s bond at $1 million for each murder charge.

The judge appointed Hayneville attorney Jerry Thornton to represent Lee. He said he would not enter a plea until after the case is heard by a grand jury, possibly early next year.

Lee made no comment during his brief court appearance. He was arrested Saturday in Selma in the slayings of Jordan Dejerinett and his twin sister Taylor, plus Jack Mac Girdner of Hope Hull.
