Malcolm Paul Thomas, 54, was arrested and charged Saturday evening for a double slaying in Oxon Hill, Prince George’s County police said Sunday

Officers were called to a home on the same 5500 block of Chloe Drive where Thomas lives Saturday morning for a welfare check. They found two women suffering from trauma to the body, police said. The women died on the scene and their names have yet to be released, officer Harry Bond said.

Thomas, who was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, remains in custody in Wakefield, Va. where he was arrested. He awaits extradition to Prince George’s County.

Bond said no details on a motive are known yet though detectives believe the killings were domestic in nature.
