Suspect in double homicide to be charged

Local News

INGHAM COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS) – The man accused of murdering two mid-Michigan women will soon appear in court.

27-year-old Kiernan Scott Brown is behind bars tonight after officials say he killed two women early Friday morning.

Brown is accused of murdering 26-year-old Kaylee Ann Brock from Holt and 32-year-old Julie Ann Mooney from Williamston.

6 News found out today that Brown has been in trouble several times before.

He was in prison for assaulting a police officer back in 2013 and strangling someone in 2014. He’s also been on parole for home invasion in 2011 and attempting to steal a car in 2013.

But most recently, Brown is accused in a double homicide that took place on Friday.

Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth says that Brown went to an ex-girlfriend’s home early Friday morning demanding to be let in.

While he was there, he sent her messages saying he spared her. This pushed to her call police.

Less than an hour later, Eaton County Sheriff’s deputies found him driving on I-69.

During the arrest, they say he showed them pictures on his phone of the two women that he killed.

Brown is currently in policy custody for other crimes; those charges include assault to do great bodily harm, domestic violence, and animal cruelty.

He’s set to appear in court tomorrow to face formal charges in the murder of the two women.

6 News will be there and bring you updates to this story as soon as we get them.
