Investigators later linked Decuir and Mims to last month’s Twin Peaks killing and earlier this month booked them on murder and a handful of other charges.

Their alleged victim, Edward French, a 71-year-old man, was shot and killed after being robbed near the popular Twin Peaks lookout July 16, where two men were shot and killed last year.

Police officials said that a male and female robbed French of a camera. They then allegedly shot him once before fleeing around 7:50 a.m. The suspects drove away in a gray Honda Accord.
