Police in Charlotte have announced that two people were arrested in the deaths of three people, who were killed back in early December.

According to police, 29-year-old Naquivs Aqueece Benson, 28-years-old Jarvis Mandrell Benson and 30-year-old Javarius Deshawn McGee were all found shot to death in a home along the 9500 block of China Grove Church Road, near Pineville. The deaths occurred on December 4.

Police charged 34-year-old Antonio Lafloyd Robinson and 34-year-old Jovon Raymar Twitty with three counts of murder each.

CMPD says Robinson was arrested Thursday morning in Lancaster through a combined effort of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, SLED, and the VCAT. He is still in jail there and awaiting extradition.

Twitty was arrested Thursday afternoon in Charlotte. According to jail records, Twitty was previously arrested on January 11 for drugs and weapons violations.

Investigators won't talk about evidence or motive. 

"These subjects are all known to each other and we did confirm that," said Major Cameron Selvey. "And there was some drug involvement there."

Naquivs and Jarvis' mother told WBTV that her sons knew Robinson for years. She said she's shocked to hear of his alleged involvement.
The mother said she didn't know why her sons were killed.

Major Selvey said "Nothing that any of these people were involved with justifies the actions that were taken." 

Shortly after the murders, relatives told WBTV the Benson brothers were celebrating the birthday of McGee. Family members were to meet Naquivs that Friday, but no one could get in touch with him. That's when they became concerned. Hours later police would tell them all three were found shot to death.

According to the family, one of the victims was friends with Antonio Massey, who was shot and killed in Lancaster County on November 29.

CMPD would only say the killings did not appear random and drugs were believed to be involved.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective. The public can also call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or visit the Crime Stoppers website.
