SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Authorities arrested a man sought in two homicides in Savannah and revealed details of their investigation Thursday at a preliminary hearing.

Federal marshals arrested Dwayne Greene without incident.

Police say Freddie Jackson, 33, was shot outside an apartment, and Laura Dowdy, 48, was shot at her home days later.

Dowdy lived near the spot where Jackson was killed. Police say an investigation showed Jackson's death was linked to a drug deal, and the woman's killing was related to Jackson's killing.

In court Thurdsay, police testified Greene killed Dowdy because she knew information about the murder.

Greene is being held in the Chatham County Jail.
