An Arkansas woman was murdered on the same property and by the same man who killed her mother 23 years ago, police said.

Martha McKay, 63, was found dead Wednesday at the historic Snowden House on Horseshoe Lake, about 30 miles southwest and across the Mississippi River from Memphis, Crittenden County cops said in a Facebook post.

Travis Lewis, 39, is the prime suspect in the case. Police say officers spotted Lewis fleeing from an upstairs window at the house.

They reported that Lewis briefly escaped to a car, but the vehicle got stuck in the yard. Lewis then jumped into the lake and never surfaced, police said. Authorities later recovered his body and identified him.

More than two decades ago, Lewis pleaded guilty to killing McKay’s mother, 75-year-old Sally McKay, and Sally McKay’s 52-year-old nephew, Joseph Lee Baker, on Sept. 10, 1996. Baker was a well-known guitarist in Memphis.
