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.
