BYRDSTOWN, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a Kentucky man has been arrested in the deaths of a father and son whose bodies were found at their family-owned store.

A statement from the TBI says 34-year-old Joshua Clay Pyles of Monticello, Kentucky, was arrested early Friday on two charges of first-degree murder. Police say he killed 58-year-old Dan Dowdy and 22-year-old Cody Dowdy late Wednesday at the Sugar Shack, which is located in Pickett County along the Tennessee-Kentucky state line.

The statement says investigators quickly developed information that led them to Pyles, but it doesn't go into detail.

Police are still investigating the motive for the killings.

Pyles was being held in the Pickett County jail without bond on Friday. It wasn't immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
