Two men are being held in the Hunt County Detention Center, charged with capital murder in connection with a double homicide in Royse City in February.

Dearis Rayvone Davis, 19, of Arlington, and Calvin Earl Rayford, 18, of Rowlett, are each being held in lieu of $1 million bond on charges of capital murder of multiple persons filed by the Royse City Police Department.

Both were taken into custody Wednesday. It was not immediately known if they have attorneys or whether they will be appearing before the district courts in Hunt County on writs of habeas corpus,  seeking the appointment of attorneys to represent them.

The Royse City Police Department earlier this year reported that it had found two people dead in the Woodland Creek subdivision during the early hours of Feb. 3, with a third individual believed to have left the scene.

One of the two victims was a high school student at the time of his death, and the other was a former student, Royse City ISD officials had confirmed.

Additional details will be posted as they become available.
