WINNEBAGO COUNTY (NBC 26) -- A man is facing charges in Winnebago County, accused of killing his wife and another man in Omro last week.

According to the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office, Andrew Clark, 52, is accused of killing Melissa Motz, previously identified as Melissa Clark, and Levar Wallace.

The Sheriff's Office said Clark shot and killed both Motz and Wallace following an argument. The Sheriff's Office then said there was an attempt to cover up the crime, "through incendiary means."

The Sheriff's Office said burnt rags or towels that appeared to have been soaked in an accelerant were found near one of the victims. The Sheriff's Office also said a candle appeared to have been used as a makeshift fuse.

Andrew Clark was taken into custody on an unrelated matter. Michael Draine was identified as a fourth person at the scene. Draine turned himself in a few days later.

According to online court records, Andrew Clark was charged Wednesday with two counts of first degree intentional homicide, as well as attempt to mutilate a corpse. His next appearance in court is scheduled for November 4.

Michael Draine is also facing a charge of harboring/aiding a felon.
