OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ An Oklahoma man charged with murder in Alabama and Georgia says he had nothing to do with the disappearance of two 16-year-old girls from northeastern Oklahoma.

Authorities say Jeremy Jones of Ottawa County, Oklahoma, is ``a person of interest'' in the December 1999 disappearance of Lauria (LORI) Bible and Ashley Freeman and the deaths of Freeman's parents.

Danny and Kathy Freeman were found dead in their burned mobile home, the girls were missing and haven't been seen since.

Jones told The Oklahoman in a telephone interview from the Mobile, Alabama, county jail he was not involved in the case.

Jones is charged with murder, rape, burglary and kidnapping of an Alabama woman whose home was set on fire. He's also charged with the murder of a 16-year-old Georgia girl and is a suspect in unsolved killings in at least four other states.
