BURNET COUNTY (May 17, 2013)--An investigation that started after two bodies were found inside a burned out home in Burnet County led deputies to make three arrests in connection with what authorities now say was a double murder.

Burnet County Sheriff W.T. Smith said Friday Gregory Mark Currie, 30, of Cedar Town, Ga., and Justin Aaron Curbow, 34, of Marble Falls, were held in the Burnet County Jail charged with capital murder.

Melissa Marie Frink, 33, of Brownwood, was held on a charge of tampering with physical evidence.

In a news release Friday, Smith said the victims were identified as Dorrina Ruth Reese, 42, and Thomas Edward Wells, 30, both of Burnet County.

Their bodies were sent to the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy, Smith said.

Spicewood volunteer firefighters found the body early Thursday after responding to the fire at around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at the home at 208 County Road 425.

The home is just off U.S. Highway 71, about 12 miles southeast of Marble Falls.

Deputies who investigated found weapons at the scene, Smith said.

Smith said a disturbance was reported at the same address at about 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

The person who reported the disturbance told officers several of the people who were involved left the residence in a green Ford Focus.

Burnet County Sheriff's Office Deputies, Criminal Investigation Division, and Special Operations; Burnet Police Department Criminal Investigators, Horseshoe Bay Police Criminal Investigators, State Fire Marshal's office, Department of Public Safety Crime Lab personnel, Heart of Texas Auto Theft Task Force and 33rd Judicial District Attorney Wiley "Sonny" McAfee all took part in the investigation, Smith said.

"The State Fire Marshal's Office is conducting an independent investigation into suspected arson connected to this case," Smith said.
