Heber Springs, AR - Two Heber Springs men face capital murder charges.  Jason Odom, 20, and Coty Boileau, 18, are accused of shooting and killing two people during a confrontation at a weekend party.  They are accused in the weekend deaths of 21-year-old Chad Watson of Heber Springs and 22-year-old Shane Collins of Searcy.

The murders happened early Sunday morning in a quiet neighborhood in Heber Springs.  Police say the two victims were walking down a street when they were gunned down by someone in a passing car. 

Authorities say the incident marks the first homicide in Heber Springs in at least a decade.
