Hunt County – 19 year old Brandon Dale Woodruff is being held in Hunt County Jail on $2 million bail on two capital murder charges in connection with the deaths of his parents, Dennis and Norma Woodruff. Brandon Woodruff was taken into custody Monday in Texarkana. His address is listed as the same residence where Dennis and Norma Woodruff were found shot and stabbed to death last Tuesday by a family friend.

A possible motive for the murders is still not being released by officials.
