Lubbock Police announced two suspects in a murder case from January. 

Xavier Garcia, 21, and Devante Greathouse, 20, are in custody and charged with the murder of 25-year-old Kmydron Jordan.

On the morning of January 13th, Lubbock County Sheriff’s deputies located a deceased male inside a vehicle in the area of 84th Street and Avenue N. The victim, identified as Kmydron Jordan, had been shot.

Through the investigation, it was determined the shooting occurred inside the city limits in the 8100 block of Interstate-27 where the victim had planned to meet two men.

Lubbock Police Department detectives took over the investigation and were able to identify Garcia and Greathouse as the two suspects.

On November 29th, arrest warrants for murder were issued for both men. Garcia was already in custody at the Lubbock County Detention Center for a separate case. At approximately 3:15 p.m., Lubbock Texas Anti-Gang Center investigators arrested Greathouse in the area of FM 1585 and the Brownfield Highway.

A Lubbock grand jury indicted Garcia with the capital murder of Katrina Castillo, 20, in April. Homeowners near E. 2nd Street and Olive found Castillo's body in their backyard. Investigators were able to identify Garcia as a person of interest due to his prior connection to the property. 

Sheriff Kelly Rowe said Garcia confessed to murdering the 20-year-old.

Garcia is held on a $550,000 bond, on both charges.
