2nd Man Arrested for Salina Double Homicide

SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Police say a second suspect has been arrested in the September 2008 slayings of two people in their Salina apartment.

A police news release issued Thursday said Terrance J. Watson of Los Angeles was booked in the Saline County Jail on suspicion of two counts of capital murder and one count of battery on a law enforcement officer.

The 25-year-old was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the shooting deaths of Ernest Jones Jr. and Taryn Dechant, both 22, in the apartment they shared.

In late December, police arrested 20-year-old Anna Louise Hartman of Salina in connection with the slayings. Police said Dechant's 2-year-old and 5-year-old children were found unharmed in the apartment.

The release said the investigation is ongoing.
