A Young Couple Was Found Dismembered in Suitcases Along Wash. Beach — and Landlord Is Charged

Authorities believe the killings took place on June 16.

According to charging documents obtained by multiple outlets, Lewis and Wenner were renting a room in Dudley’s home and had trouble paying the $1,500 monthly rent.

On the night of June 9, Dudley allegedly got into an argument with the couple because he wanted them to move out, the documents show.

Neighbors allegedly heard a loud argument at the house and a male voice pleading, “Please don’t do this. Just let me leave,” state the documents.

Shortly after, gunshots were fired, the documents state.

Dudley had the couple staying in a room of his home where bullets and blood were found. It had been recently cleaned and painted, according to Dudley's arrest report, Newsweek reports.

Dudley remains held in the King County Jail.

He is expected to enter a plea at his arraignment on Sept. 8.

It is unclear whether he has retained an attorney who can speak on his behalf.

The office of the King County Prosecuting Attorney did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
