WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of killing two women at his Waterloo home in northeast Iowa has been arrested in Illinois. Matthew Buford III surrendered to police in Peoria, Illinois, late Wednesday night. He’s being held on warrants listing two counts of first-degree murder. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him. He’s accused of killing 42-year-old Tamica Allison and 41-year-old Andrea Anderson. Police say Allison lived in the home with Buford, and Anderson was visiting. Officers and medics who were called to the home around 11:20 p.m. Monday found the two bodies.
