    Police say a man who murdered an elderly Clinton couple led investigators to their bodies more than three hour after they were killed.  And police say he admitted that he took their lives.

    The suspect is 47 year-old Willie Williams.

    The victims are 89 year-old Arthur Hodge and his 86 year-old wife, Maxine Hodge. They were stabbed and beaten to death, according to the coroner.

    Police say Williams had did odd jobs for the elderly for years.

    He told authorities that got into an argument with the man and his wife over money last Thursday night.

    Investigators say Williams then walked to Jackson and called police to confess that he killed someone in Clinton.
