Man Charged In Double Murder


An Ardmore man is in jail tonight charged with the murder of two men who were shot and killed in may. Court documents show Craig Russell Stanford is charged with  first degree murder.

Prosecutors say Stanford killed 28 year old Aaron Lavers and Anthony Rogers in their home on A Street North-west. Stanford was arrested on burglary charges shortly after the murders and is still in the Carter County Jail.

Investigators say he had electronics and other items that had been stolen from the men's home. If he's convicted Stanford could face the death penalty. He's due to go before a judge sometime next week.
