OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) - Deputies say two men wanted in connection with an arson case that killed two women last year are behind bars.

WCHS-TV (https://bit.ly/1NZCsRG ) reports 55-year-old William Dixon Sr. and 28-year-old Jonathan Jones are behind bars on two counts of murder. Dixon turned himself in early Monday and authorities found and booked Jones Monday evening.

Fayette County deputies say 28-year-old Cheryl Ward and 40-year-old Jamie Castillo died after the house they were in was set ablaze in March 2014. Ward died a day after the fire and Castillo died from her injuries a few months later.

Dixon was arraigned in Fayette County Magistrate Court. His attorney filed an emergency motion for a hearing to establish bond in the case. Bond was set at $75,000.

It isn’t clear if Jones has an attorney.
