MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department says it's made an arrest in the double homicide case from earlier in the week. Billy Johnson, 46, is charged with two counts of capital murder in connection with the deaths of his grandmother and a resident of her Morgan Avenue home.

Johnson was arrested Thursday at the police department, where he had been detained since Wednesday.

Johnson is the grandson of one of the victims, 88-year-old Vincyid Saffold. Police discovered Saffold's body Tuesday, Feb. 8, in the bedroom of her Morgan Avenue home. At that same location police also discovered the body of Herman Caffey Jr., 42, in a storage shed behind the residence. Autopsies confirm that both died from gunshot wounds.

No charges have been brought in connection with a third homicide believed to be related to the deaths of Saffold and Caffey. The body of Robert Kendrick, 51, a son of Saffold's, was discovered off Old Hayneville Road Wednesday, Feb. 10, at approximately 12:30 p.m. Kendrick also died from gunshot wounds.

The investigation is continuing, and no additional information is available.

The Montgomery Police Department asks any individuals with knowledge of these crimes to contact the MPD at 334.241.2651, Secret Witness at 334.262.4000, or CrimeStoppers at 334.215.STOP (7867). These are the city of Montgomery's third, fourth and fifth homicides for 2011.
