Police Make Third Arrest In Double Murder Case

For the second time in two days, state police announce the arrest of a suspect in a six-year-old double murder.

25-year-old Deonte Lamont Simmons of Richmond now stands charged with two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder, robbery and burglary.

Police say he gunned down Ryan Shangraw and Bo Upton in Lincoln County in 2002.

Two other suspects, whose names have not been released because they were underage at the time of the crime, are in custody.

Simmons is currently serving time on unrelated drug charges.
