Fight Over Facebook Leds to 2 Shooting Deaths

Marvin Potter, 60, has been charged with 2 counts of first-degree murder in last week's killing of Billy Payne, Jr. and his girlfriend, Billie Jean Hayworth. The couple was found shot to death in their Mountain City, Tennessee home in the far northeast corner of the state.

According to authorities, Potter was upset after the couple "unfriended" his adult daughter on Facebook. The victims had previously complained to police that Potter's daughter was harassing them after they had "unfriended" her on Facebook.

In addition to Potter, Jamie Curd has also been charged with the killings. Curd, 38, had romantic feelings for Potter's daughter, Janelle Potter, 30, according to Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece.
