In the first case, investigators say Thomas Couch shot and killed Tommy Snipes at the Blue Ox Tavern in 1982. Couch was murdered several years ago.
A man already serving time for murder pleaded guilty to killing a convenience store clerk in 2003. Investigators say Preston Crisp shot and killed Beth Aboud Yakdani during a robbery attempt. Crisp will be brought to Durham next week to face charges.
