RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The man accused in a killing spree in Appomattox could be charged with the remaining seven murders Tuesday.

Christopher Speight is charged with the murder of his sister, Lauralee Sipe.

Investigators say the January shooting spree took the lives of Sipe, her husband and two children, along with four other people.

But in February, a search warrant revealed Speight confessed to all eight shootings.

He is being held without bond at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail.
