A father and daughter charged with the killing of a Minnesota man were involved in an incestuous relationship, according to court documents obtained by the Bluefield Daily Telegraph in West Virginia. 

According to the report, Larry Paul McClure, 55, of Kentucky, and his daughters, Amanda Michelle Naylor McClure, 31, of Chisago City, Minnesota, and Anna Marie Choudhary, 32, of North Carolina, are all facing first-degree murder charges. 

All three are suspected of playing a role in the grisly killing of 38-year-old John Thomas McGuire, of Owatonna, whose remains were found Sept. 24 in a shallow grave in Skydusky, West Virginia. 

McGuire was in a relationship with Amanda McClure, court documents say. 

Authorities believe he was killed around Valentine's Day 2018, with the Bluefield Daily Telegraph reporting that he was hit on the head with a bottle of wine, tied up and injected with two vials of methamphetamine, then strangled to death. 

A criminal complaint notes that Larry and Amanda McClure traveled out of West Virginia to Virginia and got married less than a month after the crime. Incestuous marriage is illegal in Virginia. 

Larry McClure has since provided authorities a written letter confessing to playing a role in McGuire's killing with his two daughters.
