SOUTH CAROLINA - On Monday, the third person arrested for the murders of a South Carolina couple will stand before a judge.

Michael and Thelma King of Mount Pleasant were found stabbed to death in their beachfront apartment while on vacation in Saint Marrten in September.

Prosecutors said the 20-year-old suspect, only know by his initials, JJW, flew to the U.S. Virgin Islands sometime during the week, but was extradited to St. Maarten.

Authorities previously arrested a Jamaican security guard and a 17-year-old for the murders.
