A Hallsville man is behind bars on charges related to a double homicide case in Marshall and police are searching for another suspect in connection with the case.
Marshall police say Thomas Andrew Craig, 18, was arrested March 7 and charged in connection to a capital murder case. Craig is charged with tampering with evidence.
Police are still searching for Jesus Molina Delatorre, 46, in connection with the case. Delatorre is charged with capital murder and is still being sought by police.
Police said in a news release that Craig allegedly hid the firearm used in the murders of Leon Bowman, 31, and Justin Williams, 30.
Bowman and Williams were found dead March 2 at a duplex in the 1500 block of East Fannin Street. When officers arrived to perform a welfare check, they found the bodies of the two men inside.
During the investigation, MPD says investigators discovered evidence that led them to believe that Delatorre killed Bowman and Williams before fleeing the scene.
"After leaving the scene, Delatorre went to Thomas Craig's home and asked him to dispose of the weapon," MPD said in a news release. "Craig later revealed to authorities where he had hidden the weapon."
Craig was subsequently charged with Tampering with Evidence and booked into the Harrison County Jail. Delatorre is charged with Capital Murder and is still being sought by local and federal authorities.
