ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

It has been less than a week since a shooting that caused the deaths of two men in Albany and the suspect is now behind bars.

MORE: Suspect charged with double murder in Albany shooting

Trevis Price, 40, made his first appearance before a judge on Wednesday following his arrest Tuesday night.

And it's not the first time he's been arrested for murder.

When Price was 23, a jury found him not guilty in the murder of Albany's Barbara Davenport.

In 1995 Price was charged with murdering Davenport, who was shot through the screen door of her East Broad Avenue home just hours before her 30th birthday. In a 1999 trial, he was acquitted.

No one else was ever charged in Davenport's death.

Since then, Price has served about ten years in Georgia prisons for drug convictions.  

Soon after last week's shooting, police began searching for Price.

"The information was that Trevis Price was the person of interest. And apparently the police have developed additional information to provide what is know as probable cause, that is a reason to arrest," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards.

Edwards said he will be charged with the murders of Dexter Covin and L.C. Tumblin Jr.  

Price is being held without bond in the Dougherty County jail, as the investigation into the murders of Covin and Tumblin continues.

Both men were shot during what Investigators think was a drug deal.
