By  | 

It didn't take long for Montgomery County authorities to make an arrest in Tuesday's double murder. 36-year-old Colette Richnow and 36-year-old Terry Wilkerson, both of New Caney were taken into custody Wednesday charged with capital murder.

Sheriff investigators say the pair fatally shot William and Louise Lewis in the Lewis' New Caney home Tuesday morning.

They say Richnow and Wilkerson then stole the Lewis' two vehicles, a move which ended up leading authorities to the suspects in Houston.

Investigators believe Richnow knew the victims and that burglary was the motive for murder.
