Two brothers now face murder charges in Whitley County.

Last week, someone found Larry Jones, 35, shot to death on Cane Gap Road.

Late Monday night, police arrested James Allen Anderson and charged him with murder. Police say they believe the murder was the result of a drug deal gone bad.

Later in the day on Tuesday they caught up with Anderson's brother, James Wayne Anderson and arrested him.

Investigators say evidence at the scene, including a ball cap and a rifle scope helped lead them to their suspects.

Both men are charged with murder.

    I think in my opinion that it was out of fear because these boys would not harm anyone unless they were feared by something.

    Rockcastle Co. needs cops like Williamsburg cops. Cops here in Rockcastle don't know how to solve a crime at all. All they know here is how to cover their own a--. You kill or shoot someone here in this county you get away with it easily, just yell self-defense.

    Just because Larry had an addiction problem, does NOT mean he deserved to be murdered!! And just because money was owed, these 2 decided murdering him was the way to collect, i find that so heartbreaking. Now those 2 will sit in jail for the rest of thier lives, or, if justice prevails this time, they will get the death sentence, because IMO they deserve nothing less. My prayers go out to Larrys family and to the family of the men who committed this murder.

    For all you people that bash our local police departments, What do you have to say now? He was murdered last Friday morning and his killers are already in jail. Good police work.
