    The 2009 slayings of two women and their daughters may be related after all.

    Prince George's County, Md., police identified a suspect already in jail on an unrelated charge in the deaths of two nurses in their daughters about two months apart, The Washington Post reported.

    The bodies of 42-year-old Delores DeWitt and her 19-year-old daughter Ebony were found in a burning stolen car on March 16, 2009, on Webbwood Court in Largo.

    On Jan. 26, 2009, less than a mile away, Karen Lofton, 45, and her 16-year-old daughter Karissa were shot to death.

    Police have investigated whether the DeWitts' deaths were related to a series of burglaries in the neighborhood.

    FBI profilers previously said the deaths of the DeWitts and the Loftons were not related, The Post reported.
