Florida officials say a man killed his girlfriend and her lover when he found them having sex in his house after he bonded out of jail, where he spent one year behind bars. The Polk County Sheriff's Office says 50-year-old Kenyatta Bellamy faces two counts of murder, arson and other charges.

Officials say he set the bedroom on fire after killing the couple. Sheriff Grady Judd said he doesn't know why Bellamy was let out of jail. Bellamy told deputies he didn't know another man had moved into his Davenport, Florida, home, where he allowed his girlfriend to stay.
