The incident happened on June 15 at 23770 Springwoods Village Place in Spring.

Officials went into the apartment and found a 34-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman dead.

At the time, investigators did not know if the man and woman lived in the unit, but the leaseholder, who has been identified as 37-year-old Jamari Martinez, wasn't at the scene when authorities arrived.

As the investigation continued, authorities said Martinez and 18-year-old Jamariyon Charles have been charged with capital murder in connection with the case.

Martinez is currently being held in Montgomery County on an unrelated charge. Meanwhile, Charles is in the Harris County Sheriff's Office Detention Center waiting to be arraigned.

Investigators did not immediately mention a motive in the killings.
