TERRY, Miss. (WLBT) - The entire community of Terry is stunned over an horrific double murder.
The bodies of a man and woman were found inside a residence located at 1323 Timber Ridge Road.
Hinds County investigators have two suspects in custody and one of them is the brother of a victim.
Family and friends were overcome with grief as they learned of the grisly discovery inside the Terry home.
"I can confirm that it was a very violent crime scene inside and out," said Lt. Jeffrey Scott, spokesman for the Hinds County Sheriff's Department. "There was an infant child inside the residence when deputies got here and thank god that child was not harmed."
The child belonged to Robert L. Carter, 26, and his fiance, 24 year old Renitra Lee Mark.
Both had been shot multiple times.
The baby, Robert, junior is in the University Medical Center being treated for dehydration.
Gloria Carter is stunned over what happened to her son.
"He was a good person; church going; and he try to help anybody; if he can he'll try to help anybody and he didn't deserve this and she didn't either," Carter said.
Hinds County investigators believe the crime happened on Monday.
It wasn't discovered until 1:00pm Wednesday.
"A vehicle, a black Chevy belonging to the homeowner was found abandoned in Jackson and Jackson contacted the Hinds County Sheriff's Department and we came to this residence and then our deputies made the grisly discovery," Lt. Scott said.
Hinds County deputies later found and arrested Robert Carter's brother Deon Carter, 29, and Travaris Christian, 20, hiding inside a house on Reddix Street in west Jackson.
Both are charged with two counts of capital murder.
For Gloria Carter, the whole thing is incomprehensible if indeed, her son killed his brother.
"How can you kill your own brother," Carter said. "Matter of fact anybody..don't understand it."
Deon Carter reportedly lived with his brother and the two had argued before; allegedly, over the vehicle that belonged to Robert Carter.
This time the argument ended in deadly violence.
Deon Carter and Travaris Christian both are being held in the Hinds County Detention Center.
