The suspect in a double homicide at Taco Bell in Guntersville had warrants for his arrest for drug trafficking and paraphernalia charges in Colbert County, according to officials.

Kevon Yenovi Williams, 23, is being held without bail at the Marshall County jail for the shooting deaths of 19-year-old Elias Gaspar Esconbar of Boaz and an unidentified 17-year-old male in the Guntersville Taco Bell parking lot around 8:00 p.m. on September 23.

He was arrested the following day. His preliminary hearing is set for October 20.

A hold will be placed on Williams for the outstanding warrants, meaning if the capital murder charge is reduced and bond is set, he will be transferred from the Marshall County Detention Center to the Colbert County Detention Center.
