A Salisbury man was arrested just one week after two men were found dead in a Spencer home.
Kenneth Wayne Abel Jr was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder.
The victims, 29-year-old Tony Walker and 44-year-old Junior Walker, were found on October 8 at a home on the 600 block of 5th Street. Portia White, Tony's sister and Junior's niece, talked to WBTV soon after the discovery.
"I'm trying to keep my composure but I really can't believe they took my brother and uncle from me like this,” White said. “I'm trying to keep cool and let the police handle it but I'm really not feeling this whole thing."

White says the intruders were three men wearing gorilla masks who broke into the home, demanded cash and shot the two victims.
“This really took a toll on my whole family's life, nothing will be the same anymore," White added.
The day the victims were found, Spencer Police and the State Bureau of Investigation said that they had several leads in the case.
"We believe that robbery was a motive," an investigator said, "We don't believe it was just random victims. We do believe that there was reason for the victims to be targeted. As far as why they were targeted - I can't get into those specifics at this time."
Police say that other arrests are expected in the near future.
