Derrick Devaughn Carr, 20, of Nashville, and Shawn Derrick Betty Jr., 20, of Nashville, were arraigned in Wilson County Court Thursday.

Neither of the men had an attorney present and bail was set at $250,000 each, Assistant District Attorney Brian Fuller told The Wilson Post.

Fuller filed a motion to raise the amount of the bonds, but so far no further action has been made.

Carr and Betty were indicted by a Wilson County grand jury on Aug. 13 for first-degree premeditated murder, felony first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon after the Aug. 10 shooting death of Andre D. Logue and shooting of Justin L. Johnson in Lebanon.

Shortly after the murder and shooting, the men fled to Michigan where they were arrested after being stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence.
