U.S. Marshals Arrest Double Murder Suspect

According to officials U.S. Marshals arrested a Greene County double murder suspect in Lenoir County early Saturday morning.

Officials say 20-year-old Jenterius Leach was apprehended with no resistance around 2 a.m. in the Hugo area. Leach is now in jail under no bond.

Leach was wanted for the shooting deaths of 49-year-old George Dixon and 23-year-old Zarkey Rivers.

The double murder happened back on Saturday October 8th. Deputies at that time said a group of people were at a home on Lilly Pad Rd. in Greene County when a fight broke out. Dixon and Rivers were both killed after being shot in the chest.

19-year-old Tony Ellis is also charged with two counts of murder for the deaths. He was arrested soon after the incident. He remains behind bars.
