Marion County deputies said they have made an arrest in the murders of two women and two children found Friday.

Deputies arrested James Bannister early Thursday morning. They did not immediately say what led investigators to the man, other than that the Marion County Sheriff’s Office had formed a special task force decided to the case last weekend.

The victims’ bodies were discovered in a burning home on Northwest Fifth Street. They were identified as:

  • Bridget Gray, 52
  • Jocalyn Gray, 27
  • CorDarrian Hill, 8
  • CorDerica Hill, 6

After crews put out the fire, investigators determined the four victims had each been shot at least once.

Three other children were found alive outside the home, sitting in a Jeep in the driveway. They were put in the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families.
