BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham police have arrested a second man charged with capital murder in a double homicide in Ensley.

Jermaine Tolbert, 26, is charged with two counts of capital murder. He had a warrant out for his arrest last week and Birmingham police announced Thursday that he was in custody.

Dewayne Barnes, 20, is also charged with two counts of capital murder in the deaths. He was arrested on May 1.
