Deputies make third arrest in Terry murders

HINDS COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Hinds county deputies have made a third arrest in Wednesday's double murder in Terry.

29 year-old Deon Carter and 20 year-old Travaris Christian were already charged with capital murder in the couple's death... as well as charges of house burglary, felony child abuse, and conspiracy.

Now 45 year-old Alonzo Christian, uncle to Travaris Christian, has been arrested as well.

Family of the victims say Robert Carter and Renitra Mark, had lived in the home where they were killed for about a year.

The couple were also new parents to a 7-month-old baby boy named Robert Carter Junior.

The baby survived the shooting and was found on a bed next to his deceased mother.  Investigators believe he had been lying in the bed for two days before lawmen found him.  He is now being cared for by family members. 

Investigators believe a feud over a truck may have been a motive in the murder.
