RUSSELL COUNTY, Ala. (WTVM)-- Two men are under arrest and charged with capital murder in the death of Quincy Davidson and Monique Reid.

Friday, the suspects made their first court appearances in Russell County District Court.

Police won't say how or why they allegedly murdered the couple but one thing is clear- the two men knew the victims. Police say they were all roommates at some point.

Nineteen-year-old Brandon Hall and 20-year-old Terrance Mays are behind bars in the Russell County Jail, charged with capital murder in the death of 27 seven-year-old Reid and 24 year-old Davidson.

The Phenix City couple was found dead in their home on Highway 80 West Wednesday night. Police say their bodies had been their some time, possibly weeks.

From the start of their investigation, police say they had considered Mays, who is Davidson's cousin, a person of interest in the couple's death.

"That individual had been driving their car around town and we also had information that he had been telling people the family had gone a cruise," said Russell County Sheriff Tommy Boswell.

Investigators from the Russell County Sheriff's Department arrested Mays in Columbus Thursday and they say, his interrogation led to the arrest of Hall in Phenix City later that day.

Boswell says he feels confident that those responsible for the crime are behind bars.

"A double murder in our county is a tragedy. We feel for the families. The families have a loss that will be with them forever and we can't replace the lost one but we can help them with their dealing with it by assuring them that the person who did it is locked up," he added.

Terrance Mays was extradited to Russell County today. Both he and Brandon Hall plead not guilty to capital murder charges. Both have been denied bond. Mays has been appointed an attorney and Hall's family is in the process of hiring someone to represent him. At this time, a  court date for their preliminary hearings has not been set.
