WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Two murder and robbery suspects have been arrested in Waco. 

The U.S. Marshal's Service said that Devin Holefield, 25, and Devonta Orphey, 23, were arrested by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. 

On July 17, two armed robberies happened at two different locations in Lake Charles, Louisiana. During the second robbery, a victim, Gary Obrien, 31, was shot and killed during the attempt. Suspects were apprehended but Holefield and Orphey were able to flee. 

The investigation led to information that Orphey and Holefield were hiding at the Landmark Apartments in Waco, located at 344 Richland Dr. 

U.S. Marshals and the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force set up surveillance and the suspects were seen in the parking lot next to a vehicle with Louisiana plates. 

Two loaded firearms and several boxes of ammo were found in the suspect's vehicle. 

Orphey and Holefield face first-degree murder charges, three counts of armed robbery and three counts of armed robbery with a firearm. 

Holefield and Orphey were taken back to Lake Charles by Lake Charles Police Department Detectives and SWAT team members on July 24.
