CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The 22-year-old man who deputies say admitted to killing 26-year-old Ashley Kaney and her 8-year-old daughter Riley Burdick in their Sangaree home has been extradited back to Berkeley County after being held in a Virginia jail.

Officials with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office say Jacob Philip was locked up at the Berkeley County Detention Center Friday afternoon. Philip was arrested on Oct. 1 in Virginia Beach where authorities say he was arrested for stealing a car.

Philip is charged with two counts of murder after authorities say he confessed to killing Kaney and Burdick during a domestic incident in their Kershaw Road home, located in the Sangaree area of Summerville.

According to the coroner, Philip strangled Burdick. Test results are pending on Kaney's cause of death.

Sheriff's deputies said Philip returned to Virginia Beach, his hometown, after committing the crime. Once there, authorities say Philip ditched his car in a parking deck before stealing another vehicle, which he later wrecked before driving off.

Virginia Beach police arrested him after spotting him inside the stolen vehicle. He was charged with grand larceny auto, and then confessed to the murders in Summerville, according to police.

The victims were found inside their home on 302 Kershaw Road around 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 1. Deputies responded to the home after a social worker with the Berkeley County School District went there to inquire about Burdick, who had missed school at Sangaree Intermediate the last two days. When no one answered, the social worker called authorities.

Both victims were found in beds in separate rooms.

Philip was a student at the U.S. Navy Nuclear Power Training Command at the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek, where Kaney worked nearby as a waitress at The Dive Bar and Grill.
