LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) - Police say an inmate who just finished a state prison term in a firearms case has been arrested and charged in the 2016 shooting deaths of two women at a Longview apartment complex.

Gregg County jail records show Jordan Malik Carter of Longview was being held Tuesday on a charge of capital murder of multiple persons, with $1 million bond.

Carter on Monday completed a prison term in Huntsville for his conviction in a 2015 weapons case. He was sentenced in September 2016.

Longview police say Carter was immediately arrested on a warrant related to the August 2016 deaths of two women - Melekia Montgomery and Alexis Johnson.

Lt. Shane McCarter on Tuesday had no immediate additional details on either case.

Jail records didn't immediately list an attorney representing Carter.
