ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - North Texas police say DNA testing on a discarded marijuana cigarette led to the arrest of a man investigators say killed a married couple in their home in 2012.

Arlington police said in a statement Wednesday that test results identified a suspect last month. The man was arrested at the time on a parole violation and a subsequent saliva test confirmed the DNA results.

The suspect was charged Tuesday with capital murder and he’s being held at the Tarrant County jail. Police aren’t releasing his name because he was a 16-year-old juvenile at the time of the killings.

The bodies of Long Nguyen and wife Huong Ly were found in their apartment after a family member called asking police to conduct a welfare check. Police say they died of asphyxiation.
