ATLANTA (AP) - A detective told a judge in Atlanta Friday that a defendant confessed to killing two 17-year-olds behind a suburban supermarket, but did not explain why.

Local media report that Roswell Police Detective Jennifer Bennett was the only witness at the preliminary hearing for 20-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood, who is charged with murdering Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson Aug. 1 in Roswell.

Bennett said Hazelwood didn't explain why he shot them, according to WXIA-TV. She said Hazelwood told police that he shot Davis first after watching them park behind the store, and made the girl remove her clothes before shooting her in the head.

Bennett said police found a revolver when they arrested Hazelwood, along with jumper cables from Davis' car.

Hazelwood's attorney, Lawrence Zimmerman, has said he'll provide a vigorous defense.
