JCPD May 14

Nathaniel Roderick Holmes (above) and someone known only as “J” are sought by the JCPD in connection with a double homicide which took place May 7.

A second arrest was made Wednesday in a Junction City double homicide that, in May, took the lives of two local young men.

Wednesday, in Radcliff, Kentucky, suspect Nathaniel Roderick Holmes, also known as Nook, was arrested on a Geary County Warrant for two counts of first degree murder.

Holmes is the second suspect to be taken into custody for suspected involvement in the double murder of Dylan Spencer and Aaron Villarreal that took place at 805 W. 11th St. in Junction City May 7 of this year.

The other suspect is Dontavion Wright who was arrested earlier this year. Wright is currently being held in custody in Geary County.

Holmes is now awaiting extradition to Geary County from the Hardin County Kentucky Jail where he is currently being held. Holmes’ bond has been set at $2 million.

The Junction City Police Department thanked the Western Kentucky Regional Fugitive Task Force and also the Kansas Fugitive Apprehension Task Force for their help in the apprehension of Holmes. Both of those task forces are associated with the United States Marshal Service.
