Dallas police have arrested a third suspect over the apparent drug-related killing of two men whose bodies were in the trunk of a burning car in Oak Cliff.

Bond has been set at $2 million for 19-year-old Daryl Dotson of Dallas on two counts of capital murder. Electronic jail records Monday did not list an attorney for Dotson, who was captured Saturday at an apartment.

The bodies of 20-year-old Steven Govan and 19-year-old Jonathan Williams were found Dec. 18 after emergency personnel responded to a report of a burning car. Both victims had been shot.

Police say 17-year-old Debanair Wynn was taken into custody two days later. Officers on Jan. 3 arrested 18-year-old Nathan Scott.

Each has been charged with two counts of capital murder, with bond set at $2 million.
