Indictment in Double Murder Case 

A Canaan man has been indicted on double murder charges for the killings of his wife and another woman.

A Somerset Grand Jury has decided enough evidence exists to prosecute 37-year old Shannon Atwood for the deaths of 35-year old Shirley Moon Atwood, and 38-year old Cheryl Murdoch of Waterville.

Murdoch had lived at Shannon Atwood’s home in Canaan, before she disappeared last summer.

Her body was found last August in a remote part of town.

The body of Shirley Moon Atwood has yet to be found, but police are convinced she’s dead, and that Shannon Atwood killed her.
