SEAGROVE, N.C.-- More details are emerging in the brutal homicide of a couple in rural Randolph County Sunday. A Seagrove man is now behind bars, charged with both their murders, the first homicide the city's seen since since 2009.

The quiet town of Seagrove was rocked Sunday with the news of a shocking crime.

"Seagrove is the pottery capital of North Carolina, not known for having any problems there as far as, major crime like this," said Sheriff Maynard Reid.

Around 12:30 p.m. authorities say neighbors called asking for someone to check on a car parked off of Highway 705 near Lawrence Farm Road.

"They knew the car wasn't supposed to be there," Sheriff Reid added.

And when deputies arrived they found a graphic scene as 31-year-old Tyrone Marshall and 28-year-old Davida Stancil were dead inside.

But what shocked neighbors even more was that 34 year old Randy Cagle, who lives less than a mile away, was arrested and charged with the two murders. But authorities say this isn't Cagle's first trouble with the law.

According to the North Carolina Department of Corrections website, he's been arrested and charged with multiple crimes including communicating threats, breaking and entering, and resisting arrest.

"We're not as safe as we thought we were. It's a shame it has to happen in our community. It seems like things like that do happen in good places,” said neighbor, Laura Moore.

Neighbors say the two victims and the suspect were all regulars at the Whynot General Store. Paul Spencer spends a lot of time there, and says he can't remember the last time something like this happened in his small town.

"You just never thought it would happen here. It's unfortunate, the lives of them people, and the one that did it. You'd never think he would have done something like that,” Spencer said.

Authorities have not released a motive. Sheriff Reid says both of the bodies have been sent to Chapel Hill for an autopsy.

Cagle is now in jail without bond, charged with two counts of first degree murder.

The SBI, Biscoe Police, Montgomery County and Moore County Sheriff's Offices all assisted in the investigation.
