Suspects in Fuquay-Varina double murder face judge

Kevin Britt, Gregory Crawford, Donovan Richardson were all arrested over the weekend in connection with the double murder of two men in Fuquay-Varina.
It's been more than two weeks since two men were found shot and killed inside their Fuquay-Varina home. On Monday, the three men arrested over the weekend and charged with those murders faced a judge.

Kevin Britt, 20, Gregory Crawford, 21, and Donovan Richardson, 21, were all ordered held without bond. The judge told them they could all face life in prison or the death penalty if convicted.

This exclusive video from an ABC11 viewer shows Crawford's arrest. He was taken into custody at a home on Smithridge Way, a location, incidentally, that's only a couple miles away from where the victims were killed:


Crawford's neighbors on Smithridge Way described him and his family as being very nice, but would not comment further.

Last month, 78-year-old Arthur Brown and 66-year-old David McKoy were found dead in Brown's home in the 200 block of Howard Road.

Arrest warrants show the three men went into Brown's home armed, and left with a .38 revolver, a shotgun, a Thompson Machine Gun, and $150.

Now the investigation turns to why. Investigators say robbery was the motive, but also say this was not a random crime.

The investigation is still ongoing. There's no word yet from authorities on how or if the suspects knew the victims. Brown's family told ABC11 that they don't recognize any of the suspects.

Each suspect faces two counts of first-degree murder, burglary and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

No one in court for the suspects wanted to comment. All three will be in court again on Aug. 25.
