Authorities say a man charged in the shooting deaths of a man and a woman was found dead in Vermont.

The New Hampshire attorney general's office said in a news release Friday that police found 28-year-old Derrick Shippee dead in Vernon, Vermont.

Officials issued warrants for Shippee and charged him with two counts of second-degree murder in the slayings of 29-year-old Neal Bolster and 19-year-old Aaliyah Jacobs. Bolster and Jacobs were found inside a Hinsdale, New Hampshire home on Thursday. An autopsy shows both died of gunshot wounds.

An autopsy is planned to determine the cause of death of Shippee.

Vermont State Police said in a news release that Shippee has ties to southern Vermont. They said a vehicle he was believed to have been traveling in was found Thursday in Vernon, where his family owns property.
