GUNTOWN, Miss. — As a SWAT team closed in, a fugitive accused of killing a Tennessee mother and daughter and then disappearing for nearly two weeks with her two other children killed himself Thursday evening, police said, allowing authorities to safely recover the kidnapped girls.

Adam Mayes, 35, shot himself in the head after officials, acting on a tip, found him and the girls near New Albany, Miss., said Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall. Mayes was pronounced dead at a hospital, officials said.

Alexandra Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, appeared unharmed but Hall said they were taken to a hospital for observation.

Mayes was charged with first-degree murder in the April 27 deaths of the girls' mother, Jo Ann Bain, 31, and her daughter Adrienne, 14. Their bodies were found buried outside Mayes' home a week after Bain's husband reported them missing.

Mayes' wife, Teresa, is also charged with murder. She told investigators Mayes killed the two so he could abduct the young sisters, who relatives said he thought might be his daughters.
