    A carnival worker is accused of killing two women in Tennessee whom he met through his job and the teenage daughter of a co-worker in Georgia, NBC News reported.

    James Michael Wright faces three capital murder charges, according to a statement from the Washington County, Virginia, Sheriff's Office. The women were reported missing earlier this year and are said to have been killed between Feb. 28 and March 17.

    Wright, a 23-year-old from Mendota, Virginia, allegedly told investigators that the killings were accidental, but Sheriff Fred Newman said he "found that hard to believe."

    The James H. Drew carnival, where Wright worked, did not immediately return a message on Monday.
