THIS IS AN NBC33 NEWS UPDATE: Ascension Parish Deputies have arrested two more suspects in Gonzales triple murder home invasion case.

Both Devon Tremain James, 24, and Bernard R. James, 25, have also been arrested in conjunction with the case. 


ORIGINAL STORY (03-06-12): It was a gruesome murder and in less than three weeks, the Ascension Sheriff is confident he's arrested the people responsible.

Travis Moore, 19, of Baton Rouge is seen being taken into custody at the Ascension Parish jail.

He was arrested along with Rolondo Stewart, 22, and Michael Aikens, 35,  -- both of Prairieville -- and charged with 3 counts of first degree murder for the home invasion deaths of Shirley and Irwin Marchand and Doug Dooley.

Aiken was a former employee of Mr. Marchand.  A rare coin collection worth half a million dollars was stolen during the robbery.

Sheriff Jeff Wiley says a tip led to Tuesday's arrest and that Stewart was actually already in jail, accused of shooting another man within the last few days.  We're also told a fourth arrest is expected.
