Prince George's County man is charged in double murder

A Prince George's County man was arrested in Virginia Saturday and charged in the deaths of two women in Maryland, police said.

About 8 a.m. Saturday, officers were called to a house in the 5500 block of Chloe Drive in Oxon Hill and found two women dead inside, Prince George's County police said. Detectives said the victims — who were not identified — likely knew their killer and quickly issued an arrest warrant for Malcolm Paul Thomas of Oxon Hill.

Thomas, 54, was later found in Wakefield, Va., and was charged with two counts of first degree murder. He is currently in custody in Virginia, awaiting extradition back to Prince George's County. A lawyer for Thomas was not listed in electronic court records.
