Twin brothers from Florida are facing murder charges after being arrested in Virginia.

Virginia State Police said 34-year-old Octavius and Obadiah Toppin were arrested in Stafford County just before 4 a.m. Thursday. Police had been on the lookout for the brothers, who were wanted in connection with the shooting death of Raymond Torres in Palm Bay, Fla., Wednesday.

The Toppins are being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail in Stafford County, pending extradition to Florida.

An initial court appearance Thursday was continued. Hearings for both men were set for June 22.

Attorneys for the men did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
