According to the Johnson City (Tenn.) Press, a pair of Tennessee men have been charged with murdering a couple in late January, and police say a Facebook dispute is at the root of the killings.

According to the Johnson City Press story, police allege that one of the murder suspects -- a 60-year-old man -- became upset after the victims "unfriended" his adult daughter on the social networking website Facebook.

Authorities said the victims had complained to police that the 60-year-old man's daughter had been harassing them after they unfriended her on Facebook, according to the Johnson City Press report.
