BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

A Blytheville man appeared in court Wednesday, two days after he was arrested on suspicion of capital murder in the deaths of two people. 

Blytheville Police Captain Scott Adams said the 18-year-old, with three other people, are charged in the double murders of Bob Dhillon and Anthony Tramble at the Cherry Tree Food Mart last November. 

The 18-year-old man was arrested Monday on suspicion of two counts of capital murder in connection with a Nov. 2016 shooting, Adams said. 

The man is the fourth suspect arrested in the deaths of Bahadur "Bob" Dhillon, 62, and Anthony Tramble, 56 at the Cherry Tree. Adams said the man, who was 17 when the murders happened, was arrested Monday after he fled from police who went to serve an unrelated warrant. 

Blytheville police interviewed the man Tuesday at the Mississippi County jail in Luxora. According to Adams, the 18-year-old told police detailed information about the deaths and his participation in a robbery of a Shell gas station on North Service Road in Blytheville. 

In addition to capital murder, the man faces aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery, theft of property, attempted theft of property and engaging in violent criminal group activity charges. 

The 18-year-old will be back in court April 27 in Blytheville.
