Adam Mayes with Adrienne Bain, who he is alleged to have killed along with her mother, and her sister Alexandria. Mayes's wife has now said Adam's motive was to kidnap the two youngest Bain girls
Authorities have added the man suspected of killing a Tennessee woman and her teenage daughter and fleeing with the woman's two other young girls, as police hope more public attention to the case will help them nab the suspect, Adam Mayes.
Earlier Wednesday, two first-degree murder charges were filed against Mayes, 35, who has been sought by authorities for more than a week. His wife, Teresa Mayes, was also charged.
His inclusion on the Most Wanted list comes with a $100,000 reward for anyone providing information leading to his arrest. Local authorities have also pitched in an additional $75,000.
Teresa Mayes told officials the motive was to kidnap Bain's two younger daughters, 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah.
A call seeking comment from Teresa Mayes' attorney wasn't immediately returned.
The store clerk described Mayes as “calm” and “normal,” the station reported. He even purchased a Coke.
