Deonte Lamont Simmons, 25, of Richmond, Tuesday became the third person arrested in connection with the Feb. 1, 2002 Lincoln County murders of Ryan Shangraw and Bo Upton.
Simmons has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of first-degree robbery and one count of first-degree burglary.
Simmons is incarcerated at the Western Kentucky Correctional Complex in Fredonia on unrelated charges. The arrest stems from a Lincoln County indictment that was served on Simmons by Det. Monte Owens.
Second arrest came July 29
After years without a break, detectives from Kentucky and Tennessee arrested Matthew James Tolson in Sevierville, Tenn., on July 29, said Gary McCarter, who says he is the suspect's father-in-law.
