LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a fourth suspect in connection with the May murders of two juveniles killed in the Shawnee neighborhood. 

Larry Ordway, age 14, and 16-year-old Maurice Gordon, were stabbed, burned and left for dead on the afternoon of Sunday, May 22. Their bodies were found near the intersection of River Park Drive, near S. 41st Street. 

Police have already arrested Brice Rhodes, 25, in the gruesome killings of the teens, as well as 15-year-old Anjuan Carter and 18-year-old Jacorey Lamont Taylor.

On Wednesday, police announced that they had made a fourth arrest in the case. According to online court records, 19-year-old Tieren Coleman has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of complicity to abuse of a corpse and one count of complicity to tampering with physical evidence.

A source in Jefferson County Circuit Court tells WDRB that Coleman was arrested on Tuesday after a bench warrant was issued.

Coleman is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
