COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Richland County Sheriff's Department has arrested a 33-year-old man and charged him with two counts of murder in connection with a late December case in Elgin.

Ryan Mauzon Padgett has also been charged with possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent felony.

According to investigators, Padgett shot 55-year-old Tyrone Richardson and 28-year-old Mark Cox in the head at a residence on Archer Avenue back on Dec. 26, 2014.

Investigators said the bodies of both men were discovered after friends came by the home to drop off Christmas presents.

Padgett was arrested and booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
