CUMBERLAND CO., VA (WWBT) - A suspect has been arrested for killing two people in Cartersville.

Tyrone Tyree Roads, 21, of Powhatan was apprehended without incident in Richmond.

Officials in Cumberland County have charged Roads with capital murder in the deaths of Barry Shaver and Ricky Thurston. 

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said they were found lying in the yard Saturday morning.

Sheriff Hodges said a knife may have been used in the attacks.  The cause of death has not been released. 

Hodges believes the victims knew Roads.

The Commonwealth's Attorney for Cumberland County, Patricia Scales, said, "In this case, capital murder was charged because more than one person was killed in what appeared to be a willful and deliberate manner."
