A Fitzgerald man has been charged and arrested for the double murder of his next door neighbors back in April.

Investigators with the Ben Hill Sheriff's Office say that 31-year-old Patrick Sean Fletcher is facing two counts of murder for the deaths of 26-year-old Octavia Brown and her husband, 34-year-old Dewayne Brown.

The Browns were found after officials responded to a call for assistance on Eastside Church Drive on April 22. Investigators determined that the cause of death was from gunshot wounds.

Fletcher's girlfriend, Tacarra Leverett, was charged earlier in the year with three counts of felony false statements and is out on bond.
