UNION, South Carolina (WYFF) -- South Carolina investigators say a couple accused of murdering a registered sex offender and his wife may have killed before.

Jeremy Moody, 30, and his wife, Christine Moody, 36, were arrested early Wednesday and charged with murder in the deaths of Charles "Butch" Parker, 59, and his wife, Gretchen Parker, 51.

Union County Sheriff David Taylor said the Moodys killed Butch Parker because he was a registered sex offender, and they intended to kill another sex offender on Wednesday.

During a news conference on Wednesday, Taylor said Moody told investigators, "This isn't the first time something like this has happened." Taylor said Moody implied he has killed before.

"We're trying to verify that or disprove that at this time. Right now we don't know we're checking into what he has told us to see," Taylor explained.
