(CNN) — Charles Everett Brownlow Jr.’s mother is dead. So is his aunt. The same goes for two of his acquaintances, plus a convenience store worker in his hometown of Terrell, Texas, some 30 miles east of Dallas.

Yet rather than preparing for their funerals, Brownlow is likely planning his defense — from jail.

All five of the deceased died violently, found over a busy and bloody six-hour stretch Monday night within miles of each other in Terrell. As of Tuesday afternoon, the 36-year-old Brownlow faced a single charge of murder, in the death of the Ali‘s Market worker, the only victim it is believed the suspect did not know. But Terrell police Chief Jody Lay made clear that “additional capital murder charges” are anticipated.

“This is a country community, a rural community,” Lay said Tuesday. “People are really close. And this is going to have a really big impact on us.”

The chaos began around 5 p.m. Monday with reports of a gunshot victim. Police arrived to find a dead woman — later determined to be Belinda Walker, Terrell’s 55-year-old aunt — with at least one bullet wound to the head.

About a half hour later, a firefighter noticed that a nearby home was on fire, Lay explained. These flames were quickly extinguished, and authorities found another woman’s body. This was Charles Brownlow‘s house, and the victim was Mary Brownlow, his 61-year-old mother.
