 More information unfolds on a double homicide in Hudson as two new suspects make their initial appearance in court today.



 Following the arrest of the first suspect of a double homicide in Hudson that killed Eric Likes and Elva Quiver, authorities now have two more suspects in custody, 20-year-old Joseph Jude Jenkins of Arapaho and 20-year-old Samantha June Hanway of Ethete.

During their initial appearance Wednesday morning in Riverton's Circuit Court, Judge Wesley Roberts read off their charges, Joseph Jenkins faces a total of 11 felony counts including first degree murder, aggravated robbery and first degree arson along with several other conspiracy counts.

Samantha Hanway who started crying once the judge began reading off her charges, faces nine felony counts including first degree murder, first degree arson, aggravated robbery and two other conspiracy counts.

According to court documents, Laziur Hanway Jr., who was arrested earlier this month, told an FBI agent that himself, along his sister Samantha Hanway and Joseph Jude Jenkins drove a stolen pickup to Hudson on November 15, 2011.
On their way to Hudson the group decided to rob Eric Likes and Elva Quiver and kill them to cover up the crime.

The document then goes on to say Samantha Hanway dropped the two males off at the LIkes residence while they asked to use the phone claiming they were stranded.
Knowing Hanway Jr. as his previous employee, Likes let the two males into the home, and offered them to stay the night. Likes then went to bed where Elva Quiver was already in their bedroom.

Shortly after the two males went into the bedroom where the couple was sleeping. The report says that's when Jenkins began stabbing Likes with a knife and Hanway Junior began stabbing Quiver. 

Once the couple was dead, the affidavit says the two men went through the home stealing jewelry, tools, silverware and money. While they were stealing the items, Samantha Hanway walked into the home and saw the bodies. The three of them drove back to Riverton and hid the stolen items and returned the stolen vehicle.

Two days went by and the group realized no one had noticed the crime, the document says on the night of November 17, 2011, they purchased gasoline in Lander and returned to Hudson where Samantha Hanway once again dropped them off and waited about half a mile outside of the town limits.

According to the report, the two men went into the home and put gasoline on the two bodies and throughout the residence. They ignited the gasoline as they left the house, returned to the vehicle and went back to Riverton.

Joseph Jenkins is being held on a $2,000,000 cash bond and Samantha Hanway is being held on a $500,000 cash bond at the Fremont County Jail in Lander. The orginial suspect in the case, Laziur Hanway Jr. is still awaiting his preliminary hearing.
