MARLIN, Texas (AP) - A 19-year-old man and 19-year-old woman face capital murder charges in the death of another 19-year-old man found shot several times and dumped beside a rural Central Texas road.

In a statement issued Thursday, the Falls County Sheriff Department said Jesse Lee Whigham and Brittni Poile were arrested Wednesday.

Cap Sudduth's body was found Sunday morning in a rural area just outside Rosebud, about 35 miles southeast of Waco.

Whigham's attorney, Abel Reyna, tells the Waco Tribune-Herald in Thursday's editions that his client is innocent. He says Sudduth and Whigham both lived in Rosebud and were friends.
