    The Burnet County Sheriff's Office said three people have been arrested in connection to the murder of two people found in a burned home Thursday.

Officials say murder suspect Gregory Currie committed suicide while in custody in the Burnet County Jail.

A spokesperson for the Burnet County Sheriff's Office said the 30-year-old Currie tore off a piece of his sheet and hung himself from the shower head.

Currie was arrested last week and charged with the capital murders of Dorrina Reese and Thomas Wells. Their bodies were discovered by firefighters who were responding to a house fire at a home near Spicewood. Investigators said the two victims had been shot.

Currie was arrested the next day and charged with capital murder. Justin Curbow, 34, was also arrested and charged with capital murder in connection to the crime. Melissa Frink, 33, was charged with tampering with evidence.
