A 32-year-old Rochester man has been arrested in connection with the deaths of Terri and Stacey Moulton.

Dante Taylor is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

Police say the two women were checking on a neighbor’s cat. A family member went to look for them when they didn’t return and that’s when he found the bodies.

Investigators say there was a small fire burning inside of the home, which appears to be intentionally set to cover up the crime. Police say they suspect the women stumbled upon a burglary. Investigators say the house was ransacked.

Police say they were able to track Taylor down using a vehicle description and other leads.

Taylor is currently being held in the Monroe County Jail on a parole violation. We are told he has an extensive criminal history.

News10NBC is told the Wayne County District Attorney will present this case to a Grand Jury.
