(KTNV) — According to FBI Las Vegas, two fugitives wanted in connection with a fatal home invasion robbery in southwest Las Vegas have been arrested in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department gave a press conference providing information on the two. During the conference, Lt. Ray Spencer said investigators believed the robbery was arranged by Schultz, who had visited the home before. The victims were apparently targeted because Schultz learned there was "expensive jewelry" inside the home.

"There is a 'very high chance' Schultz and Overton have fled the state," Spencer said during the conference at the time.
