The GBI has accused a man of shooting a Hancock County couple to death last year.

According to a news release, 19-year-old Brandon Charleston was arrested Friday and charged with killing the pair on Sept. 11, 2011.

Last September, Hancock Sheriff Tomlyn Primus said 34-year-old Darryl Scott and 31-year-old Dedria DeShay Green were shot to death in  their home at 141 Tommie Lane in Sparta.

The two were boyfriend and girlfriend, according to Primus.

Two children were reportedly living in the home as well, but they were not injured.

Authorities have not released any further information on the arrest or the shootings, including the alleged motive.

GBI spokesman Tom Davis and Hancock investigator Ricky Brown declined to comment further on the case.
