    Lavon Shinn and his co-defendant, Christopher Miller are charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Gino Nicolas, 24, and Tanya Skeen, 46.



    Police said the victims were innocent bystanders.

    A judge has ordered the arrest of a material witness who hasn't shown up to court to testify. Prosecutors said the man ignored subpoenas and voicemails.

    "Obviously the state's expending a lot of effort in getting this witness. He has to be important to the state's case," WFTV legal expert Bill Sheaffer said.
