Posted: Updated:

HINDS COUNTY, Miss. (WLBT) - New developments Monday night in last week's double murder in Terry.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith said Deon Carter and Travaris Christian have been indicted by a grand jury.

The two are being charged in the deaths of Renitra Mark and Robert Carter.

In the indictment, Deon Carter, the brother of Robert Carter, is charged with firing the fatal shots that killed the couple.

Alonzo Christian, Christian's 45-year-old uncle, made his initial appearance Monday in Hinds County Court.

Christian was given no bond.

Christian, along with the others, are being charged with two counts of capital murder, house burglary, and felony child abuse.

The D.A. says it's possible Christian was the mastermind behind the murders.
