Kentucky State Police have announced a fourth arrest has been made in connection to a double murder in June.

Devante Hall, 24, of Dayton, Ohio was arrested Friday night by officials in Montgomery County, Ohio in connection to the murders of Brandy Davidson and Devin Payton.

On June 8, Eugene Wade, Jr, 28, of Shelbyville was arrested, and was charged with two counts of murder.

A fisherman in Montgomery County found Payton's body along the water under the Slate Creek Bridge near Bedford Road on June 4.

Then on June 5, Davidson's body was found near a cabin in Wolfe County.

Two other people have been arrested in connection to the case.

Kentucky State Police have charged Talmadge Branham and Carla Hunt with tampering with physical evidence.

According to their arrest citations Hunt and Branham washed blood out of a car that was used to transport the body from Wolfe County to Montgomery County.

State police say the two were with three other men at a rental cabin in Wolfe County when two of those men got into a fight with the third, and shot him.
