Update: No bond for Hubbard in Sumter murder; Another arrest made

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - A judge denied bond Friday morning for Demetrius Hubbard, 21, who was arrested Wednesday in connection to the murders of a Sumter County man and his mother.  Friday afternoon, the Sumter County Sheriff said that Marcus Brown had also been arrested, and charged with murder in this case.

Bonnie Freeman McSpadden, and her son Dallas Freeman were killed in their Leslie home last Friday, and their home was set on fire, perhaps to cover the crimes.

Hubbard is charged with two counts felony murder, two counts aggravated assault,  arson in the first degree, and armed robbery.  

So far, six men are in jail charged in the investigation. We learned Friday that investigators arrested 19-year-old Shekil Woods of Sumter County for making false statements in this double homicide case.

Ruhemmeion King was arrested Monday on the same charges and has already been denied bond. Three others face charges of theft by receiving stolen property and were also denied bond.
