YELLVILLE (KFSM) — Authorities in northern Arkansas say a 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shootings of his grandfather and his uncle.

Marion County Sheriff Clinton Evans says Donald Steven Beckwith Jr. was arrested Saturday on first-degree murder warrants.

Jail records show Beckwith is being held without bail, but do not list an attorney for him.

Evans says deputies investigating reports of a shooting on Saturday found the two victims dead on the porch of a home and arrested Beckwith at the scene.

The names of the victims have not yet been released.
