DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. -- Jennifer Lanning, a suspect in the Davidson County double homicide in October, has waived extradition and will be returned from Pennsylvania to North Carolina, according to the Davidson County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said Lloyd Franklin, 34, and Lanning, 38, were on the run for more than a week before being found at the Knights Inn motel in Trevose, Pa.

Following a standoff with police, investigators say Franklin shot himself in the head. Lanning is in custody in the Buck County, Pa.

Investigators said Franklin killed 82-year-old Davie Lee McSwain and 78-year-old Joan McSwain in their home in Davidson County on Oct. 29. Lanning had also been wanted for accessory to murder after the fact.

Franklin and Lanning have also been connected to other crimes since the homicides, including three drug store robberies.

Lanning will be brought back to Davidson County on Tuesday morning, escorted by three Davidson County deputies.
