Two Coffee County residents have been charged with the shooting deaths of a man and a woman who were discovered Saturday inside a Manchester home.
The two charged with felony murder are Cullen Blake Hickerson, 25, and Ronald Andrew Archey, 54. They were arrested Wednesday morning and are scheduled to make their first court appearance Thursday.
The two are charged in the deaths of Chastity Hill, 27, and Logan Tindale, 22. They were found in a home on Clyde Vickers Road, which is a residential, dead-end street. According to information released by law enforcement, the two were killed by gunshot wounds.
A motive has not been revealed.
“Dozens of interviews, hours of crime scene investigation and the resolve to achieve justice for these victims resulted in developing evidence to make the arrests of two individuals involved in these murders,” District Attorney General Craig Northcott said in a statement to the Manchester Times.
“I want to thank all of the investigators and officers of the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department for their relentless and professional efforts in this investigation. I want to thank Sheriff Chad Partin for making available all the resources of his department and his many hours leading the investigation,” Northcott said in a story posted on the Manchester Times website.
It’s unknown if any additional information will be revealed about the case Thursday during the first court appearance for Hickerson and Archey, which is known as arraignment. During arraignment, suspects are formally informed of the charges against them and they are expected to enter an initial plea. They are also assigned legal representation.
