LAGRANGE, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a west Georgia man accused in the deaths of his wife and four others has been arrested.

Sheriff's officials have said Lee is suspected in the deaths of his wife, her daughter, her parents and a family friend who had been living with them in LaGrange - roughly 80 miles southwest of Atlanta and just east of the Alabama state line.

Woodruff has said at least four of the victims appear to have been shot to death, but autopsies will determine their official causes of death.

Details on the circumstances that led to the killings are unclear. It's unclear if Lee has an attorney. A police dispatcher said he was being brought to the county jail but had not been processed yet.
